The goal for the third generation (3G) of mobile communications system is to seamlessly integrate a wide variety of communication services such as high-speed data, video and multimedia traffic as well as voice signals for transmission on a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) air interface. CDMA suffers from interference and in this thesis multiuser detection for the mobile uplink has been considered. A thorough comparative study for different multiuser detection methods is done. RAKE-IC as an architecture for mixing the ideas of RAKE receiver, and parallel Interference Cancellation, are introduced. The basic concept is to maximize the signal to noise ratio of all users in the system by using adaptive algorithms. The structure of RAKE-IC has been extended to multi-stages and several adaptive algorithms are implemented. An iterative method for interference cancellation has been considered and its convergence issue has been analytically studied. An improvement in convergence using the Rayleigh-Ritz theorem is proposed which in consequence increases the convergence speed in synchronous scenarios. Using analytical methods another improvement using the Gershgorin theorem has been proposed which does not impose a great complexity in the system, yet works well even in asynchronous environments. A suboptimum search algorithm for correcting the reliable detected information has been introduced with the property that its structure can be combined well with the iterative detectors. This combination achieves a better performance than partial parallel interference cancellation method even in rather low interference regions of operation. The structure of the sub-optimum search algorithm has been extended to multiple stages and its performance in terms of bit error rate has been analytically derived in closed form that shows good agreement with the simulation results. Considering the power profile of the users and by sacrificing a little performance, the suboptimum search structure has been further simplified. Key words: Multiuser Detection, WCDMA and Interference Cancellation.
