چکیده:

The Tomlinson-Harashima Precoding (THP) is considered as one of the efficient techniques for achieving near Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) channels capacity withreasonable complexity. However, at low Signal-to-Noise Ratios (SNR), the THP performance is dominated by modulo loss, which isproportional to the constellation points at the boundaries that may be mistaken for symbols at the opposite boundary of the constellation.This paper, addresses modulo loss and proposes using a Maximum A-Posteriori (MAP) detector rather than a modulo detector. A MAP detector recovers part of the modulo loss by optimizing the boundary regions that are considered to be fixed at the modulo receiver. The proposed method is based on a scalar operation rather than a vectoroperation that is used in typical MAP detectors, and is appropriate for multi-user applications. Moreover, simulation results show thatthe Bit Error Rate (BER) advantage of the MAP-THP receiver with less complexity compared with that of the modulo receiver
