— An intuitive shortcut to understanding the maximum a posteriori (MAP) decoder is presented based on an approximation. This is shown to correspond to a dual-maxima computation combined with forward and backward recursions of Viterbi algorithm computations. The logarithmic version of the MAP algorithm can similarly be reduced to the same form by applying(More)
Performance of a wideband multipath-fading terrestrial digital coded communication system is treated. The analysis has applications to a cellular system employing direct sequence spread spectrum CDMA with M-ary orthogonal modulation on the many-to-one reverse (user-to-base station) link. For these links, pqwer control of each multiple access user by the(More)
