We consider multicell downlink transmission where multi-antenna base stations (BSs) collaborate in transferring data to multiple cochannel multicast groups. Our aim is to design a joint transmitter selection and cooperative precoding scheme which maximizes the minimum received data rate among all receivers under constraints on the individual BS transmit power budgets as well as backhaul link capacity. The problem is naturally cast as a mixed Boolean nonconvex program whose global optimal solution is difficult to achieve. To solve this problem locally, we first use difference-convex (DC) functions to represent the Boolean variables, and further transform the problem into an equivalent but more tractable formulation. We then propose an iterative algorithm which provably converges to stationary solutions. Numerical results are provided to demonstrate the superior performance of the proposed method.
