Traditional multiuser receiver algorithms developed for multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) wireless systems are based on the assumption that the channel state information (CSI) is precisely known at the receiver. However, in practical situations, the exact CSI may be unavailable because of channel estimation errors and/or outdated training. In this paper, we address the problem of robustness of multiuser MIMO receivers against imperfect CSI and propose a new linear technique that guarantees the robustness against CSI errors with a certain selected probability. The proposed receivers are formulated as probabilistically constrained stochastic optimization problems. Provided that the CSI mismatch is Gaussian, each of these problems is shown to be convex and to have a unique solution. The fact that the CSI mismatch is Gaussian also enables to convert the original stochastic problems to a more tractable deterministic form and to solve them using the second-order cone programming approach. Numerical simulations illustrate an improved robustness of the proposed receivers against CSI errors and validate their better flexibility as compared with the robust multiuser MIMO receivers based on the worst case designs
