In this paper, the authors propose a feedback-based transmit power and carrier phase adjustment scheme that estimates the symbol energy and the carrier phase offset for each transmitter's received signal, computes the optimal received power level and carrier phase shift to maximize the minimum Euclidean distance between the constellation points, and finally feeds the optimal transmit power level and phase shift information back to the transmitters. They then evaluate the performance of the proposed transmit power and carrier phase adjustment scheme and subsequently show that the proposed scheme significantly reduces the error probability in a multiuser communication system having MPR capability.
