The unknown vector reconstruction from its linear measurements is one of typical problems in wireless communications systems, such as channel equalization, channel estimation, MIMO (multi-input multi-output) signal detection, and IoT (internet-of-things) signal detection. In conventional approaches, the number of observations in linear measurements is generally assumed to be greater than or equal to that of unknown vector elements. For example, in MIMO signal detection problem, the number of receiving antennas should be greater than or equal to that of transmit streams. However, in order to improve the spectral efficiency, it is preferable to cope with the scenario where the number of linear measurements is possibly less than that of dimension of the unknown vector, namely, underdetermined linear measurements. In this talk, we call such signal processing as overloaded signal detection, and explain fundamental ideas to recover an unknown discrete and/or sparse vector from underdetermined linear measurements by using compressed sensing technique.
