In a multiple access spread-spectrum communication system, the bit error performance is usually limited by the mutual interference between users. The use of multi-user detection is an effective method to reduce such interference. In this paper, we consider two linear multi-user detectors, namely, decorrelating detector and minimum mean-square-error detector, applied to a multiple access chaotic-sequence spread-spectrum communication system. An approach to calculate the bit error rate (BER) for
