In this thesis, we study the achievable rates of some interference communication schemes when iterative interference-cancellation (IC) is applied. We assume multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication employing iterative receivers with linear front-ends which involves two modules concatenated serially and cooperating iteratively; a linear combiner based on minimum-mean-square-error (MMSE) detection or maximal-ratio-combining (MRC) and a SISO decoder. We investigate the achievable rates of this receiver when the transmitted signal is Gaussian-distributed with hypothetical erasure-type feedback from the decoder to the combiner and a more practical case with large-size QAM constellations with log-likelihood-ratios (LLRs) being exchanged between the receiver's modules. The achievable rate is approximated by the area below the EXIT curve of the linear FE receiver. Some properties have been observed and mathematically been proved about the iterative MIMO receivers with linear front-end.
