Adaptive mean-square error (mse) and maximum-likelihood detection (MLD) algorithms for a dual-channel digital communication system in the presence of interchannel interference and white Gaussian noise are presented. The mse algorithm forms estimates of the transmitted symbols from a linear combination of received symbols using weights that minimize the mse between transmitted and estimated symbols. The nonlinear MLD algorithm minimizes the probability of symbol error by maximizing the probability of the received signal samples on the two channels over ail possible transmitted symbol pairs. The probability of error is derived for the two algorithms when quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) is used as a modulation technique, and is compared with that of a dual-channel QPSK system having no compensation for the crosstalk.
