This paper reviews the performances of three heuristic near-optimum Multiuser Detection (MuD) approaches applied to the synchronous Multicarrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) communication systems. Genetic Algorithm (GA), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Ant-Colony Optimization (ACO) heuristic MuD detection algorithms are analyzed in details. The simulations show that, the bit error rate (BER) performance reached by all near optimum Heuristic MuD depends on the system operation
