Our aim in this work is to propose fully distributed schemes for transmit and receive filter optimization. The novelty of the proposed schemes is that they only require a few forward-backward iterations, thus causing minimal communication overhead. For that purpose, we relax the well-known leakage minimization problem, and then propose two different filter update structures to solve the resulting non-convex problem: though one leads to conventional full-rank filters, the other results in rank-deficient filters, that we exploit to gradually reduce the transmit and receive filter rank, and greatly speed up the convergence. Furthermore, inspired from the decoding of turbo codes, we propose a turbo-like structure to the algorithms, where a separate inner optimization loop is run at each receiver (in addition to the main forward-backward iteration). In that sense, the introduction of this turbo-like structure converts the communication overhead required by conventional methods to computational overhead at each receiver (a cheap resource), allowing us to achieve the desired performance, under a minimal overhead constraint. Finally, we show through comprehensive simulations that both proposed schemes hugely outperform the relevant benchmarks, especially for large system dimensions.
