Multiuser Detection provides the first comprehensive treatment of the subject of multiuser digital communications. Multiuser detection deals with demodulation of the mutually interfering digital streams of information that occur in areas such as wireless communications, high-speed data transmission, satellite communication, digital television, and magnetic recording. The development of multiuser detection techniques is one of the most important recent advances in communications technology, and this self-contained book gives a comprehensive coverage of the design and analysis of receivers for multiaccess channels, while focusing on fundamental models and algorithms. The author begins with a review of multiaccess communications, dealing in particular with code division multiple access (CDMA) channels. Background material on hypothesis testing and the effect of multiuser interference on single-user receivers are discussed next. This is followed by the design and analysis of optimum and linear multiuser detectors. Also covered in detail are topics such as decision-driven multiuser detection and noncoherent multiuser detection. The elements of multiuser detection are clearly and systematically presented along with more advanced recent results, some of which are published here for the first time. The extensive set of references and bibliographical notes offer a comprehensive account of the state of the art in the subject. The only prerequisites assumed are undergraduate-level probability, linear algebra, and introductory digital communications. The book contains over 300 exercises and is a suitable textbook for practicing engineers, as well as a valuable reference volume for researchers in communications and signal processing.

From Our Editors

Starting with simple examples and then progressing to state-of-the-art applications, Multiuser Detection explores one of the most important areas in modern communications technology. It begins with a review of multi-access communications -- in particular, code division multiple access or CDMA channels -- and then goes on to discuss simple and optimum approaches for demodulating CDMA channels. It also deals with decorrelating and nondecorrelating linear multiuser detection schemes. Some of the more advanced topics in Multiuser Detection include decision-driven multiuser detection, noncoherent multiuser detection and array processing.

Editorial Reviews

"The topic of multiuser detection lies at the heart of modern terrestrial and satellite-based wireless communication systems. In this book one has on offer a clear and comprehensive exposition by the pioneering researcher in the field. This timely and fundamental book will be welcomed by every communication engineer."
