© 1997-2012 IEEE. A first-order zero-forcing beamformer design is proposed in this letter for MU-MIMO systems under per-antenna power constraints (PAPC). By forming the regularized dual problem, first-order methods can be applied. To achieve the limit convergence rate of first-order methods, an accelerated method is introduced to solve the regularized dual problem. Simulation results are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
