In this paper, we propose a new downlink nonorthogonal multiuser superposition transmission scheme for future 5G cellular networks, which we refer to as the lattice partition multiple access (LPMA). In this proposed design, the base station transmits multilevel lattice codes for multiple users. Each user’s code level corresponds to a distinct prime and is(More)
Cyclic redundancy check (CRC) bits that are conventionally used for error detection have recently found a new application in universal mobile telecommunications system standard for message length detection of variable-length message communications. It was anticipated that the CRC bits, when they are coworked with the inner convolutional code, can be used to(More)
Recently, a maximum-likelihood (ML) decoding algorithm with two phases has been proposed for convolutional tailbiting codes [1]. The first phase applies the Viterbi algorithm to obtain the trellis information, and then the second phase employs the algorithm A* to find the ML solution. In this work, we improve the complexity of the algorithm A* by using a(More)
Cyclic redundancy check (CRC) bits that are conventionally used for error detection have recently found a new application in UMTS WCDMA standard (specifically, "blind transport format detection") for message length detection of variable-length message communications. Co-worked with the inner convolutional code, it was demonstrated that the CRC bits can(More)
Due to rapid interest on the applications of convolutional tail-biting to communication systems, several suboptimal algorithms have been proposed to achieve near-optimal Word error rate (WER) performances with circular Viterbi decoding approach. Among them, the wrap-around Viterbi algorithm (WAVA) proposed is the one with least decoding complexity. Very(More)
Many solutions for detecting signals transmitted over flat-faded multiple input multiple output (MIMO) channels have been proposed, e.g., the zero-forcing (ZF), minimum mean squared error (MMSE), sphere decoding (SD) algorithms, to name a few. These approaches however suffer from either unsatisfactory performance or high complexity. In this paper, we focus(More)

In this work, we proposed a reliability-based enhancement for the decoding of convolutional tail-biting codes (CTBC) from the observations that the decoding does not have to start from the beginning of the received vector, and that the reliability of the received vector can be used to determine a good starting position of the decoding process.
