The effects of channel estimation errors on the performance of a system employing Tomlinson-Harashima precoding and the QR decomposition, operating over multiple antenna frequency-flat fading channels with decentralized receivers, is evaluated. The QR decomposition of the channel matrix is employed to arrive at an equivalent channel where successive interference cancellation at the transmitter can be used to remove the effect of the multiuser interference. However, in the case of imperfect channel estimation, it is not possible to remove the effect of the multiuser interference due to a mismatch between the precoder and the channel. Consequently, it is necessary to include the estimation error in deriving the probability of symbol error. We also provide simulations to corroborate the analytical results.
