The authors investigated the detection of trellis codes designed for channels that are intersymbol interference free when they operate in the presence of intersymbol interference. A well-structured reduced-state sequence estimation (RSSE) algorithm is described which can achieve the performance of maximum-likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) with drastically reduced complexity. Well-defined reduced-state trellises are first constructed by merging the states of the ML supertrellis using set partitioning principles. Then the Viterbi algorithm is used to search these trellises. A special case of RSSE, called parallel decision-feedback decoding, uses the encoder trellis, yet on channels with large attenuation distortion it can provide a significantly better performance than linear equalization. The performance of RSSE is examined analytically and through simulation, and then compared to that of MLSE and ideal decision-feedback equalization. It is noted that the performance advantage of RSSE can be obtained without significantly increasing the decoding delay or complicating an adaptive implementation
