Stochastic signal design is studied for the downlink of a multiuser communications system. First, a formulation is proposed for the joint design of optimal stochastic signals. Then, an approximate formulation, which can get arbitrarily close to the optimal solution, is obtained based on convex relaxation. In addition, when the receivers employ symmetric signaling and sign detectors, it is shown that the maximum asymptotical improvement ratio is equal to the number of users, and the conditions under which that maximum asymptotical improvement ratio is achieved are presented. Numerical examples are provided to explain the theoretical results. © 2012 IEEE.
