Joint Relay–User Beamforming Design in a Full-Duplex Two-Way Relay Channel

A full-duplex (FD) two-way relay channel (TWRC) with multiple antennas is considered. For this three-node network, the beamforming design needs to suppress self-interference (SI). While a traditional way is to apply zero forcing (ZF) for SI mitigation, it may harm the desired signals. In this paper, a design that reserves a fraction of SI is proposed by solving a quality-of-service (QoS) constrained beamforming design problem. Since the problem is challenging due to the loop SI, a convergence-guaranteed alternating optimization (AO) algorithm is proposed to jointly design the relay-user beamformers. Numerical results show that the proposed scheme outperforms ZF method and achieves a transmit power value close to the ideal case.
