Multi-User Detection for Asynchronous Space-Frequency Block Coded Schemes in Frequency Selective Environments

Multi-user detection is an efficient approach proposed to boost the spectral efficiency of a wireless communication system. While multi-user detection in synchronous systems or in flat fading environments has been successfully addressed, it is still an open and challenging problem in the practical case of asynchronous MIMO systems employing space-frequency (time) block coding and operating in frequency selective environments. In this paper, the authors show how the concept of multi-user detection can be efficiently extended to the latter case with a low complexity overhead and a small performance loss compared to the synchronous case.
