This integrated receiver structure has been developed in previous work by the authors (1982, 1983) to approximate maximum-likelihood (ML) reception in the presence of both intersymbol interference (ISI) and spatially distributed interference (SDI) when the latter is modeled as zero-mean Gaussian noise. A simulation study is presented of the convergence properties of the receiver when the SDI is replaced by non-Gaussian impulsive or burst noise. Results indicate that the convergence characteristics are relatively insensitive to the statistics of the SDI, provided that second-order properties are held fixed, at least for moderate deviations from Gaussian behavior. For highly impulsive SDI environments, however, the adaptive system exhibits a complete failure to converge.
