Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) biorthogonal partners arise in many different contexts, one of them being multiwavelet theory. They also play a central role in the theory of MIMO channel equalization, especially with fractionally spaced equalizers. In this paper we first derive some theoretical properties of MIMO biorthogonal partners. We develop conditions for the existence of MIMO biorthogonal partners and conditions under which FIR solutions are possible. In the process of constructing

The additional flexibility in design makes these equalizers more robust to channel noise. Finally, other situations where MIMO biorthogonal partners occur will also be considered, such as prefiltering in multiwavelet theory and deriving the vector version of the least squares signal projection problem.
