Open Access research that shapes economic thinking...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI), a leading independent economic research unit focused on the Scottish economy and based within the Department of Economics. The FAI focuses on research exploring economics and its role within sustainable growth policy, fiscal analysis, energy and climate change, labour market trends, inclusive growth and wellbeing.

The open content by FAI made available by Strathprints also includes an archive of over 40 years of papers and commentaries published in the Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary, formerly known as the Quarterly Economic Commentary. Founded in 1975, "the Commentary" is the leading publication on the Scottish economy and offers authoritative and independent analysis of the key issues of the day.

Abstract

In this paper, we derive a concurrent constant modulus algorithm (CMA) and decision directed (DD) scheme for blind multiuser equalisation, suitable for downlink DS-CDMA systems. Adaptation is performed by concurrently minimising two cost functions based on either a CM criterion or a DD scheme for all active users. Computer simulations are used to assess the performance of the algorithm.
