The fourth Industrial Revolution is expected to lead to an era of technological innovation and digitization that would require connectivity by the users, anywhere and anytime. The fifth generation of wireless communication systems and the technologies therein are being explored to cater to high connectivity needs that encompass high data rates, very low latencies, energy-efficient systems, etc. A multiuser environment is anticipated that would require multiple access techniques, such as Nonorthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA). The user data in the power domain NOMA is superimposed, at the transmitter base station, which is in turn subjected to Successive Interference Cancellation at the user end. In the multiuser downlink, the desired user's signal is subjected to imperfect SIC due to incomplete cancellation of the undesired user's signal. Pulse-shaping of NOMA symbols using wavelet transform is proposed to mitigate the multiuser interference due to imperfect SIC. Closed-form symbol error rate (SER) expression is derived for the wavelet NOMA system for a three-user scenario. Analytical results show that wavelet transform pulse-shaped NOMA performs better compared to Fourier transform pulse-shaped NOMA symbols in mitigating SIC and thereby minimize the residual error due to imperfect SIC.
