Abstract: In this paper, the uplink direct-sequence code-division multiple access (DS-CDMA) multiuser detection (MuD) problem is studied from a heuristic perspective. The heuristic particle swarm optimisation (PSO) approach is due to the NP-complexity of the MuD optimisation problem. The challenge is to solve the associated hard complexity problem in a polynomial time. A complete parameter optimisation procedure for PSO applied to the MuD problem is carried out herein under different system configurations, such as high-order modulation and diversity exploitation. The PSO-MuD performance is analysed through Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) method. MCS results show that, after convergence, the performance achieved by the PSO-MuD is much better than that shown by the conventional detector, and somewhat closer to that given by the single-user bound. The flat Rayleigh channel is initially considered, but the results are further extended to the space-time wireless channels.
