This paper addresses the problem of decoding and precoding in the K-user MIMO interference channels. At the receiver side, a joint decoding of the interference and the desired signal is able to improve the receive diversity order. At the transmitter side, we introduce a joint linear precoding design that maximizes the joint cut-off rate, known as a tight lower bound on the joint mutual information for high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). We also derive a closed-form solution of the precoding

This solution is characterized by its low computational complexity, and only requires a local channel state information knowledge at the transmitters. Our simulation results show that decoding interference jointly with the desired signal results in a significant improvement of the receive diversity order. Also a substantial bit error rate and sum-rate improvements are illustrated using the proposed precoding designs.
