Abstract

We consider factor-graph-based soft self-iterative equalization in wireless multipath channels. Since factor graphs are able to characterize multipath channels to per-path level, the corresponding soft self-iterative equalizer possesses reduced computational complexity in sparse multipath channels. The performance of the considered self-iterative equalizer is analyzed in both single-antenna and multiple-antenna multipath channels. When factor graphs of multipath channels have no cycles or mild cycle conditions, the considered self-iterative equalizer can converge to optimum performance after a few iterations; but it may suffer local convergence in channels with severe cycle conditions.
