The δ-adjusted M-th order multiuser detector employs a new approximation algorithm to decorrelate the received signals from different users. This proposed algorithm can completely detect the received signal from each user at asymptotically high signal-to-interference ratios without error if the signals’ cross-correlation matrix is available at the receiver site.
