On iterative LDPC-based joint decoding scheme for binary input Gaussian multiple access channel
Non-orthogonal multiple access schemes are of great interest for next generation wireless systems, as such schemes allow to reduce the total number of resources (frequencies or time slots) in comparison to orthogonal transmission (TDMA, FDMA, CDMA). In this paper we consider an iterative LDPC-based joint decoding scheme suggested in . We investigate the most difficult and important problem where all the users have the same power constraint and the same rate. For the case of 2 users we use a known scheme and analyze it by means of simulations. We found the optimal relation between the number of inner and outer iterations. We further extend the scheme for the case of any number of users and investigated the cases of 3 and 4 users by means of simulations. Finally, we showed, that considered non-orthogonal transmission scheme is more efficient (for 2 and 3 users), than orthogonal transmission.
