Complex Gaussian belief propagation algorithms for distributed multicell multiuser MIMO detection

Yue, Ziqi and Guo, Qing and Xiang, Wei (2015) Complex Gaussian belief propagation algorithms for distributed multicell multiuser MIMO detection. In: IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM 2014), 8-12 Dec 2014, Austin, TX. United States.


In this paper, we considered a practical system where the number of base station antennas serving tens users is large but finite. The signal must be collected before detection, and the optimal maximum a posteriori (MAP) detector has high computational complexity that grows exponentially with the number of users. Even the suboptimal MMSE-SIC (soft interference cancellation) requires complexity proportional to the cube of the number of the antenna units. In this paper, we proposed a distributed detection scheme done at each antenna unit separately, termed complex Gaussian belief propagation algorithm (CGaBP), for multicell multi-user detection. The multiuser detection problem is reduced to a sequence of scalar estimations, and detecting each individual user using CGaBP is asymptotically equivalent to detecting the same user through a scalar additive Gaussian channel with some degradation in the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the desired user due to the collective impact of interfering users. The degradation is determined by the unique fixed-point of state evolution equations. Numerical results show that CGaBP has low complexity and overhead, and achieves optimal data estimates for Gaussian symbols, and is better than MMSE-SIC for finite-alphabet symbols.
