An Iterative List-Based Multiuser Detector for Overloaded Receivers in a Rayleigh Fading Channel
We consider a wireless communication system where multiple co-channel users transmit data via a synchronous, frequency-flat Rayleigh fading channel. The receiver employs an antenna array. The paper develops an iterative list multiuser detector for overloaded applications where the number of transmitted signals exceeds the number of receive antennas. The receiver uses a linear preprocessor to reduce co-channel interference followed by a multiuser detector with an iterative groupwise symbol detection algorithm that extracts a list of the most likely user symbols. Simulation results show that the proposed detector provides good complexity-performance trade offs.
