Part of the SpringerBriefs in Computer Science book series (BRIEFSCOMPUTER)


In this chapter, the compatibility of NOMA will be introduced by discussing the applications of NOMA to various techniques, such as heterogeneous networks (HetNets), cognitive radio networks (CRNs), and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO). Particularly, the average performance of NOMA enabled HetNets will be provided as an example.
