    With the explosive growth of Internet devices, the 5G new radio (NR) system faces congestion and high latency issues due to the low access efficiency of traditional orthogonal multiple access (OMA).Besides this, the performance of the orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM)-based system is severely degraded due to the Doppler effect in high-speed scenarios.To meet the low-latency, high-reliability, and massive connection requirements of 6G communication in high-mobility scenarios, firstly, a novel orthogonal time frequency space (OTFS)-based pattern division multiple access (PDMA) scheme, shortened as OTFS-PDMA, was proposed.Then, the system input-output relationship of different types of PDMA codeword allocation schemes in the delay-Doppler (DD) domain was derived.Finally, a low-complexity expectation propagation algorithm (EPA)-based receiver was proposed.Simulation results illustrate that the proposed OTFS-PDMA scheme achieves significant performance gains over the conventional OTFS-OMA scheme.For regular PDMA patterns, the PDMA codeword allocation has a slight impact on the system performance.For irregular patterns, the centralized spreading method outperforms the discrete one.For discrete spreading scheme, the system can achieve better performance by assigning irregular PDMA spread signals along the Doppler direction.In addition, the proposed EPA receiver outperforms its conventional counterparts.

    Ultra-dense low earth orbit (LEO) satellite communication networks can overcome the scarcity of spectrum resources and the limited coverage of traditional terrestrial networks, and thus have the potential to provide high data rate services and global massive connectivity for terrestrial users.However, due to the high mobility of the satellites, LEO satellite networks put more stringent requirements on antenna technologies in terms of accurate beam steering and high antenna gain.Reconfigurable holographic surface (RHS), as a new type of metamaterial antenna, is investigated to assist LEO satellite communications.The RHS can electronically control the metamaterial units by leveraging the holographic principle to generate desired directional beams.Based on the hardware structure and holographic working principle of RHS, an RHS-assisted multi-satellite communication scheme was proposed, which considered both the LEO satellite tracking scheme and the data transmission scheme.A holographic beamforming optimization algorithm was also designed to maximize the sum rate.Simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed scheme and demonstrat that the RHS provids a more cost-effective way to support satellite communications than the conventional phased array antennas.

    To enhance the massive machine-type communications (mMTC) random access (RA) performance, a pattern division random access (PDRA) scheme was proposed for massive multiple-input multiple-output (mMIMO) systems.In this scheme, the pilot contention space was expanded to the pattern-domain.To enlarge the size of contention space without resorting to increasing the physical resources, the pattern-domain pilot was constructed based on the superposition of L cyclically-shifted Zadoff-Chu (ZC) sequences.Simulation results illustrate that the PDRA scheme can reduce pilot collision probability significantly, and improve the access success probability compared with the conventional RA scheme, without compromising excessively on channel estimation and data detection performance.

    Ship detection plays an important role in tasks such as military reconnaissance, maritime target tracking, and maritime traffic control.However, due to the influence of variable sizes of ships and complex background of sea surface, detecting multi-scale ships remains a challenge in complex sea surfaces.To solve this problem, an improved YOLOv4 method based on multi-layers information interactive fusion and attention mechanism was proposed.Multi-layers information interactive fusion (MLIF) and multi-attention receptive field (MARF) were applied and combined reasonably to build a bidirectional fine-grained feature pyramid.MLIF was used to fuse feature of different scales, which not only concatenated high-level semantic features from deep layers, but also reshaped richer features from shallower layers.MARF consisted of receptive field block (RFB) and attention mechanism module, which effectively emphasized the important features and suppressed unnecessary ones.In addition, to further evaluate the performance of the proposed method, experiments were carried out on Singapore maritime dataset (SMD).The results illustrate that the method proposed can effectively solve the problem of difficult detection of multi-scale ships in complex marine environment, and meet the real-time requirements at the same time.

    In order to improve the receiver performance of the sparse code multiple access (SCMA) system based on polar codes, the cyclic redundancy check (CRC) aided joint iterative detection and decoding receiver scheme based on simplify soft cancellation list (SSCANL) decoder (C-JIDD-SSCANL) was proposed.A polar code decoder in the C-JIDD-SSCANL receiver used the SSCANL algorithm.In this algorithm, decoding node deletion technology was used to simplify L times of soft cancellation (SCAN) decoding required by soft cancellation list (SCANL) algorithm by deleting frozen bit nodes, then the computational process of soft information update between nodes was simplified, and the computational complexity of decoding algorithm was reduced.The simulation results show that the SSCANL algorithm can obtain the same performance as the SCANL algorithm, and its computational complexity is reduced compared with the SCANL algorithm.Compared with the joint iterative detection and decoding scheme based on SCAN decoder (JIDD-SCAN) and the CRC aided joint iterative detection and decoding scheme based on SCAN decoder (C-JIDD-SCAN), the performance of C-JIDD-SSCANL receiver scheme based on SSCANL decoder is improved by about 0.65 dB and 0.59 dB respectively when the bit error rate is 10-4.

    Traditional attention-based recommendation algorithms only use position embeddings to model user behavior sequences, however, ignore specific timestamp information, resulting in poor recommendation performance and overfitting of model training.The multi-task matrix factorization recommendation model based on time attention was proposed, which used the attention mechanism to extract the neighborhood information for the user and item embedding, and used the Ebbinghaus forgetting curve to describe the changing characteristics of user interests over time.The model training process introduced a reinforcement learning strategy of experience replay to simulate the human memory review process.Experimental results on real datasets show that the proposed model has better recommendation performance than existing recommendation models.
