Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access is one of the most important technologies in 5G and Beyond 5G wireless communications, which improve system performance by power domain multiplexing. In realizing Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access, the pairing of multiple users is necessary where efficient principles are highly demanded in dynamically changing electromagnetic environments. In the meantime, ultrafast methods of solving multi-armed bandit problems have been developed using chaotic laser time series. In

We numerically demonstrate that the proposed scheme accomplishes higher throughputs compared with traditional user pairing algorithms, especially in cases with lower user density.
