In recent years, the remarkable promise of multiple-antenna techniques has motivated an intense research activity devoted to characterizing the theoretical and practical issues associated with multiple-input multiple-output wireless channels. This activity was first focused primarily on single-user communications but more recently there has been extensive work on multi-user settings. The aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of the fundamental information-theoretic results and practical implementation issues of multi-user multiple-antenna networks operating under various conditions of channel state information.
