Several authors have shown that the structure of the least-mean-square linear estimator of the sequence of random amplitudes in a synchronous pulse-amplitude-modulated signal that suffers intersymbol interference and additive noise is a matched filter whose output is periodically sampled and passed through a transversal filter (tapped delay line). It is our purpose in this paper to generalize this result to synchronousm-ary signals (e.g., FSK, PSK, PPM signals). We prove that the structure of the least-mean-square linear estimator of the sequence of random parameters in a synchronousm-ary signal, which suffers intersymbol interference and additive noise, is a parallel connection ofmmatched filters followed by tapped delay lines. A similar structure is derived for the continuous waveform estimator of a synchronousm-ary signal. Finally, we present a structure for estimation-decision detection of synchronousm-ary signals, which is based on least-mean-suare linear estimates of aposterioriprobabilities.
