Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has been identified as one of the promising technologies to enhance the spectral efficiency and throughput for the fifth generation (5G) and beyond 5G cellular networks. Alternatively, Coordinated multi-point transmission and reception (CoMP) improves the cell edge users’ coverage. Thus, CoMP and NOMA can be used together to improve the overall coverage and throughput of the users. However, user grouping and pairing for CoMP-NOMA-based cellular networks…

From the system level simulation results, it has been shown that the proposed maximum throughput NOMA-CoMP scheme together with user scheduling provides higher spectral efficiency compared with joint proportional fairness (JPF) scheduling algorithm under different criteria of making cell-edge decision.
Power control for coordinated NOMA downlink with cell-edge users
Numerical results show that NOMA can significantly outperform an orthogonal multiple access scheme in terms of power consumption and outage probability.

This study discusses and proposes a suboptimal scheduling strategy that achieves NOMA with coordinated transmitters in the downlink, with linear complexity, and compares performances with other schemes.
On the Performance of a Multi-Tier NOMA Strategy in Coordinated Multi-Point Networks
A novel multi-tier NOMA (TNOMA) scheme is proposed for a coordinated multi-point (CoMP) network to improve the coverage of high data rate services in a CoMP network, especially for the case when access points are not able to serve all of the users in the network.
Downlink Power Allocation for CoMP-NOMA in Multi-Cell Networks
This paper considers the problem of dynamic power allocation in the downlink of multi-cell networks, where each cell utilizes non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA)-based resource allocation and proposes a distributed power optimization approach at each cooperating BS whose optimal solution is independent of the solution of other coordinating BSs.
Adaptive User Pairing for NOMA Systems With Imperfect SIC
The proposed adaptive user pairing (A-UP) algorithm results in better performance than state-of-the-art NOMA pairing algorithms in the presence of SIC imperfections and is proposed for achieving better user rates.
On the Performance of Opportunistic NOMA in Downlink CoMP Networks
In the numerical results, the sum-rate and the outage performance of the proposed ONOMA CoMP are compared with the JT-NOMA coMP and it is shown that the proposed OnOMA scheme outperforms the conventional Jt-N OMA scheme in CoMP system.
The role of small cells, coordinated multipoint, and massive MIMO in 5G
This paper proposes a smart combination of small cells, joint transmission coordinated multipoint (JT CoMP), and massive MIMO to enhance the spectral efficiency with affordable complexity and shows in measurements with macro-plus-smallcell scenarios that spectral efficiency can be improved by flexible clustering and efficient user selection.
A Novel Opportunistic NOMA in Downlink Coordinated Multi-Point Networks
A novel opportunistic NOMA (ONOMA) scheme is proposed, which aims to improve the efficiency of the successive interference cancellation (SIC) decoding in conventional NOM a in CoMP system.
Resource Allocation for CoMP in Cellular Networks With Base Station Sleeping
It is shown that the coverage loss due to BSS can be compensated via coordinated multi-point (CoMP) -based transmission in a cluster of base stations and a heuristic that solves this problem is presented.
