Stochastic optimization assisted joint Channel Estimation (CE) and Multi-User Detection (MUD) were conceived and compared in the context of multi-user Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) aided Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing/Space Division Multiple Access (OFDM/SDMA) systems. The development of stochastic optimization algorithms, such as Genetic Algorithms (GA), Repeated Weighted Boosting Search (RWBS), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Differential Evolution (DE) has stimulated wide interests in the signal processing and communication research community. However, the quantitative performance versus complexity comparison of GA, RWBS, PSO and DE techniques applied to joint CE and MUD is a challenging open issue at the time of writing, which has to consider both the continuous-valued CE optimization problem and the discrete-valued MUD optimization problem. In this study we fill this gap in the open literature. Our simulation results demonstrated that stochastic optimization assisted joint CE and MUD is capable of approaching both the Cramer-Rao Lower Bound (CRLB) and the Bit Error Ratio (BER) performance of the optimal ML-MUD, respectively, despite the fact that its computational complexity is only a fraction of the optimal ML complexity. © 2012 IEEE.
