The electromagnetic radio frequency spectrum is a scarce and
valuable resource. Its utilization can be improved by allowing
multi-layer communications, in which several signals are simultaneously
transmitted and received in the same frequency band. In this talk I will
describe some algorithms for the transmission and reception of
multi-layer signals. These algorithms are compatible with commonly used
transmitter and receiver equipment that was not designed for multi-layer
communications. Such algorithms have great practical importance because
they yield increased network capacity and at the same time allow
telecom equipment manufacturers (including both handset and network
vendors) and wireless operators to obtain additional returns on their
multi-billion dollar investments.
