In this paper, we study the blind equalization problem of time-varying (TV) systems where the channel variations are too rapid to be tracked with conventional adaptive equalizers. We show that using a finite Fourier basis expansion, a TV antenna array system can be cast into a time-invariant multiinput, multi-output (MIMO) framework. The multiple inputs are related through the bases, thereby allowing blind equalization to be accomplished without the use of higher order statistics. Two

Related issues such as order determination are addressed briefly. The proposed algorithms are illustrated using simulations.
