Abstract Quaternion-valued wireless communication systems have been studied in the past. Although progress has been made in this promising area, a crucial missing link is lack of effective and efficient quaternion-valued signal processing algorithms for channel equalization and beamforming. With most recent developments in quaternion-valued signal processing, in this work, the author fills the gap to solve the problem by studying two quaternion-valued adaptive algorithms: one is the reference…
