By combining multipath processing, differential signal detection, and multiuser detection techniques, we develop a class of near-far resistant linear detectors for differentially coherent multipath signals. We derive and establish performance relationships among the following detectors: an optimally near-far resistant detector, a suboptimum detector which does not require knowledge of the signal coordinates, and a minimum mean square error (MMSE) detector which achieves near-optimum asymptotic efficiency. We present an adaptive multiuser detector which converges to the MMSE detector without training sequences and which requires less information than the conventional single user rake receiver.
