Blind Adaptive Filtering

  • Paulo S. R. DinizEmail author


There are a number of applications where the reference signal is either not available or consists of a training signal that in communication systems implies in reduction of useful data transmission. In those cases, we should utilize some alternative objective functions applied to the available data as well as some knowledge related to the nature (properties) of the signals involved.
