As the latest member of the multiple access family, non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has been recently proposed for 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) and envisioned to be an essential component of 5th generation (5G) mobile networks. The key feature of NOMA is to serve multiple users at the same time/frequency/code, but with different power levels, which yields a significant spectral efficiency gain over conventional orthogonal MA. This article provides a systematic treatment of this newly

This article also reviews the state of the art in the standardization activities concerning the implementation of NOMA in LTE and 5G networks.
