|Abstract:||In this thesis, we propose and investigate promising approaches for interference mitigation in multiple input multiple output (MIMO) and code division multiple access (CDMA) systems. Future wireless communication systems will have to achieve high spectral efficiencies in order to meet increasing demands for huge data rates in emerging Internet and multimedia services. Multiuser detection and space diversity techniques are the main principles, which enable efficient use of the available spectrum. The main limitation for the applicability of the techniques in these practical systems is the high complexity of the optimal receiver structures. The research emphasis in this thesis is on the design of a low complexity interference suppression/cancellation algorithm. The most important result of our research is the novel design of interference cancellation receivers which are adaptive and iterative and which are of low computational complexity. We propose various adaptive iterative receivers, based on a joint adaptive iterative detection and decoding algorithm. The proposed receiver can effectively suppress and cancel co-channel interference from the adjacent antennas in the MIMO system with a low computation complexity. The proposed adaptive detector, based on the adaptive least mean square (LMS) algorithm, is investigated and compared with the non-adaptive iterative receiver. Since the LMS algorithm has a slow convergence speed, a partially filtered gradient LMS (PFGLMS) algorithm, which has a faster convergence speed, is proposed to improve the convergence speed of the system. The performance and computational complexity of this receiver are also considered. To further reduce the computational complexity, we apply a frequency domain adaptation technique into the adaptive iterative receivers. The system performance and complexity are investigated. It shows that the computational complexity of the frequency domain based receiver is significantly lower than that of the time domain based receiver with the same system performance. We also consider applications of MIMO techniques in CDMA systems, called MIMO-CDMA. In the MIMO-CDMA, the presence of the co-channel interference (CCI) from the adjacent antennas and multiple access interference (MAI) from other users significantly degrades the system performance. We propose an adaptive iterative receiver, which provides the capability to effectively suppress the interference and cancel the CCI from the adjacent antennas and the MAI from other users so as to improve the system performance. The proposed receiver structure is also based on a joint adaptive detection and decoding scheme. The adaptive detection scheme employs an adaptive normalized LMS algorithm operating in the time and frequency domain. We have investigated and compared their system performance and complexity. Moreover, the system performance is evaluated by using a semi-analytical approach and compared with the simulation results. The results show that there is an excellent agreement between the two approaches.|
