A mean field theory of coded CDMA systems

Yano, Toru; Tanaka, Toshiyuki and Saad, David (2008). A mean field theory of coded CDMA systems. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and General, 41 (32), p. 324022.


We present a mean field theory of code-division multiple access (CDMA) systems with error-control coding. On the basis of the relation between the free energy and mutual information, we obtain an analytical expression of the maximum spectral efficiency of the coded CDMA system, from which a mean field description of the coded CDMA system is provided in terms of a bank of scalar Gaussian channels whose variances in general vary at different code symbol positions. Regular low-density parity-check (LDPC)-coded CDMA systems are also discussed as an example of the coded CDMA systems.
