In this chapter we investigate transmission systems where more than one antenna is used at both ends of the radio link. The use of multiple transmit and receive antennas allows one to reach capacities that cannot be obtained with any other technique using present-day technology. After computing these capacities, we show how "space-time" codes can be designed, and how suboptimum architectures can be employed to simplify the receiver.
