We propose a geometric mean decomposition (GMD) based vector precoding (VP) for multiple input multiple output (MIMO) systems. Minimum mean square error (MMSE) criterion is used for the joint VP design. The application of GMD method eliminates the imbalance among subchannel gains and obtains a better perturbation vector than the conventional method. We then exploit the extended channel matrix for further performance improvement. Simulation results show the proposed schemes significantly outperform the existing VP schemes.
