In this paper, we investigate the performance of various interference cancellation techniques in direct-sequence ultra-wideband (DS-UWB) communication systems. Multiple access interference (MAI) causes the performance of the conventional single user detector in DS-UWB systems to degrade. Due to high complexity of the optimum multiuser detector, suboptimal multiuser detectors with less complexity and reasonable performance have received considerable attention. A hybrid approach that employs a genetic algorithm (GA) and chaos algorithm (CSA) for the MUD problem in UWB communication systems is proposed. By taking advantage of heuristic values and the collective intelligence of GACSA, the proposed detector offers almost the same bit error rate (BER) performance as the full-search-based optimum multiuser detector does, while greatly reducing the computational complexity. The near-far resistance of the GACSA-based multiuser detector is also examined. The good behavior of the proposed approach is demonstrated by means of comparisons in term of bit error rate (BER) performance and implementation complexity with the classical Rake receiver and different multiuser receivers previously proposed in the literature on this subject.

    ABSTRACT: We employ a multiuser detection (MUD) method using a novel genetic algorithm (GA) based on complementary error function mutation (CEFM) and a differential algorithm (DA) for ultra-wideband (UWB) systems. The proposed MUD method is termed CEFM-GA DA for short. We describe the scheme of CEFM-GA DA, analyze its algorithm, and compare its computational complexity with other MUDs. Simulation results show that a significant performance gain can be achieved by employing the proposed CEFM-GA DA, compared with successive interference cancellation (SIC), parallel interference cancellation (PIC), conventional GA, and CEFM-GA without DA, for UWB systems in lognormal fading channel. Moreover, CEFM-GA DA not only reduces computational complexity relative to conventional GA and CEFM-GA without DA, but also improves bit error rate (BER) performance.

    ABSTRACT: This paper introduces a novel two-step interference alignment beamforming algorithm for a multiple-antenna interference channel with uncoordinated interference. The proposed algorithm performs subspace division of the signal space by using the total least squares method to use all available degrees of freedom in the system. The algorithm also uses the minimum mean square error as a criterion to maximize the sum rate of the system. Simulation results indicate that the sum rate of the proposed algorithm outperforms the sum rates of previous works in the context of a network with uncoordinated interference. The performance levels of these algorithms are also compared for different uncoordinated interference strengths. Almost the same trend is obtained for the sum rate performance.
