We use the parametric channel identification algorithm proposed by Chen and Paulraj (see Proc. IEEE Vehicular Technology Conf., p.710-14, 1997) and by Chen, Kim and Liang (see IEEE Trans. Veh. Technol., p.1923-35, 1999) to adaptively track the fast-fading channels for the multichannel maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) equalizer using multiple antennas. Several commonly-used channel tracking schemes, decision-directed recursive least square (DD/RLS), per-survivor processing recursive least square (PSP/RLS) and other reduced-complexity MLSE algorithms are considered. An analytic lower bound for the multichannel MLSE equalizer with no channel mismatch in the time-varying specular multipath Rayleigh-fading channels is derived. Simulation results that illustrate the performance of the proposed algorithms working with various channel tracking schemes are presented, and then these results are compared with the analytic bit error rate (BER) lower bound and with the conventional MLSE equalizers directly tracking the finite impulse response (FIR) channel tap coefficients. We found that the proposed algorithm always performs better than the conventional adaptive MLSE algorithm, no matter what channel tracking scheme is used. However, which is the best tracking scheme to use depends on the scenario of the system
