The non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) and massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technologies have become integral parts of the emerging fifth-generation (5G) wireless standard. This thesis focuses on investigating the potential of integrating NOMA with massive MIMO to enable massive connectivity with high spectral efficiency and low end-to-end latency for the next generation wireless systems.
