Summary: 
This letter considers a dual-hop multiuser MIMO amplify-and-forward relay broadcast system with multi-antenna nodes. A unified scheme is addressed to jointly optimize the linear transceiver based on the sum mean-square error (MSE) and the sum rate criterion. The solutions are iteratively obtained by deriving the gradients of the objective functions for a gradient descent algorithm. Simulation results demonstrate the performance improvements in terms of the BER and the sum rate.
