To combat the multipath and time-variant fading of wireless communication channels, antenna arrays are usually used to improve the quality and increase the capacity of communication service. This paper investigates the fast blind adaptive algorithms for the equalization and diversity combining in wireless communication systems using antenna arrays. Two second- order statistics based algorithms, SOSA and MSOS, for equalization and diversity combining are proposed and their convergence in noiseless and noisy channels is analyzed. Since the proposed algorithms use only second-order statistics or correlation of the channel outputs, they converge faster than the higher-order statistics based algorithms, which is also confirmed by computer simulations examples.
