We create an efficient statistical pruning (SP) algorithm for fixed-complexity sphere decoder (FSD) by utilizing partial decision feedback detection (i.e., SP-FSD). Simulation results show that SP-FSD not only attains the near-optimal performance, but also achieves much lower complexity than the original FSD and its two lately-developed variants: the simplified FSD (SFSD) and the statistical threshold-based FSD (ST-FSD).
