Abstract: In this paper, we study the problem of power and channel allocation for multicarrier non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) full duplex (FD) systems. In such a system there are multiple interfering users transmitting over the same channel and the allocation task is a non-convex and extremely challenging problem. Following a block coordinated descent approach, we propose two algorithms based on the decomposition of the original allocation problem in lower-complexity sub-problems, which can be solved in the Lagrangian dual domain with a great reduction of the computational load. Numerical results show the effectiveness of the proposed approach, which outperforms other schemes designed to address NOMA-FD allocation and attains performance similar to the optimal solution with much lower complexity.
