There exist few blind solutions for chaotic MIMO channel equalization. In this work, a chaotic MIMO channel equalization framework is proposed. The objective function to be minimized in the proposed solution is obtained by adopting the objective function developed for chaotic SISO channel equalization. Furthermore, an optimum filter that minimizes the proposed cost function is designed to recover chaotic input signals assuming that the channel is known. The stationary point of the adaptive solution is equal to the optimal filter if the adaptive filter coefficients change sufficiently slowly. The adaptive solution is contrasted with the optimum filter in terms of mean-square error and bit error rate performances. In addition, the proposed solution reconstructs chaotic input signals at the same time. Consequently, it can be applied to multiple signal separation problems as well.
