In this paper, a soft-in soft-out multiuser detector for synchronous co-channel signals transmitted over frequency-flat Rayleigh-fading channels is described. The derivation of the proposed algorithm is based on a generalization of the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm, called Bayesian EM. Performance results for both uncoded and coded phase shift keying transmissions show the efficacy of the proposed multiuser detection technique over slowly time-varying fading channels in a two-user system.
