Professor Sergio Verdú

1. Multiacces Communication

Multipoint-to-point communication - Frequency division multiple access - Time Division multiple access - Random Access Communication - Code Division Multiple Access

2. Code Division Multiple Access Channels

Basic Synchronous and Asynchronous models - Direct sequence spread spectrum - Modulation - Fading and channel distortion - Antenna arrays

3. Single-user matched filter

Hypothesis Testing - Optimum Single-user receiver - The Matched filter in the CDMA channel: bit-error-rate - Performance measures: Asymptotic efficiency and near-far resistance

4. Optimum Multiuser detection

Optimum detectors for synchronous and asynchronous channels - Minimum probability of error analysis- Optimum asymptotic efficiency and near-far resistance

5. Decorrelating detector

Decorrelators for synchronous and asynchronous channels - Truncated window and approximate decorrelators - Performance analysis: optimality of near-far resistance

6. Non-decorrelating linear multiuser detectors

Optimum linear multiuser detectors - MMSE linear multiuser detector - Adaptive MMSE linear multiuser detector - Blind MMSE linear multiuser detector

7. Tentative-decision based nolinear multiuser detectors

Successive cancellation - Multistage Detection Decision - Feedback equalization

8. Noncoherent Multiuser Detection

Differentially coherent detectors - Fading and multipath
