Summary

This chapter deals with applications of independent component analysis (ICA) and blind source separation (BSS) methods to telecommunications. In the following, the authors concentrate on code division multiple access (CDMA) techniques, because this specific branch of telecommunications provides several possibilities for applying ICA and BSS in a meaningful way. At the end of the chapter, the authors give references to other communications applications of ICA and related blind techniques used in communications.
