Summary: 
In this paper, we propose an iterative minimum mean square error detection with interference cancellation (MMSED-IC) for frequency-domain filtered single carrier (SC)-frequency-division multiple-access (FDMA) uplink transmission. The use of a square-root Nyquist transmit filter reduces the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) while increases the frequency-diversity gain. However, if carrier-frequency separation among multiple-access users is kept the same as the one used for the case of roll-off factor α=0 (i.e., brick-wall filter), then the adjacent users' spectra will overlap and multi-user interference (MUI) occurs. The proposed MMSED-IC can sufficiently suppress the MUI from adjacent users while achieving the maximum frequency-diversity gain. We apply the proposed MMSED-IC to a packet access using filtered SC-FDMA, multi-input multi-output (MIMO) multiplexing, and hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ). It is shown by computer simulation that filtered SC-FDMA with α=1 can achieve higher throughput than orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA).
