In this article, we investigate a resource allocation problem for multicarrier multiuser MISO (multiple-input-Single-output) downlink systems, where multiple co-channel multicast groups are served simultaneously. We consider a rate-splitting transmission scheme to address the inevitable inter-group interference under an overloaded multigroup multicast scenario, where the insufficient number of transmit antennas prevents the conventional schemes from neutralizing the interference. We first formulate an optimization problem for maximizing the minimum multicast group rate among all groups on all available subcarriers. This problem involves a joint power and subcarrier allocation optimization, and is non-convex. We apply an iterative scheme based on successive convex approximation (SCA) to find the locally optimal solution. Simulation results demonstrate the performance gain of the proposed scheme compared to the state-of-the-art transmission schemes.
