Synthesis of linear equalizers by the simple iteration method

E. B. Solovyeva


The paper describes a new method for “blind” smoothing of nonlinear distortion in communication channels represented by Volterra’s filters. Compensation of the channel nonlinearity is performed based on the simple iteration algorithm. The results obtained are compared with the results of processing by the high-order inverse and by the method of fixed point.
