Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT, volume 206)


In this chapter, we give the introduction of several models discussed in this book, including interference cancellation for multiple antenna multiple access channel and X channel with perfect and quantized feedback. We provide backgrounds in each scenario and the discussion on related literatures. We clearly state our objective and the method we use in this book. Finally, we describe in details the results we have achieved and give some useful comments.
