Channel estimation/equalization in Digital Communications

This page contains a brief introduction to principles of channel estimation/identification and channel equalization. Some demonstration programs in MATLAB are included. Typical simulation results are shown.

This is for beginners to learn what is equalization, how to do simulation, as well as what is adaptive signal processing.
