A novel noncoherent decision-feedback equalization (NDFE) scheme for M-ary differential phase shift-keying signals transmitted over intersymbol interference channels is presented. A suboptimum version with lower computational complexity and a noncoherent linear equalizer (NLE) are derived from the original NDFE scheme. Furthermore, the relation of the novel NLE to a previously proposed NLE is investigated. In contrast to known NDFE schemes, the novel scheme can approach the performance of coherent minimum mean-squared error decision-feedback equalization. For adaptation of the feedforward and feedback filters, efficient novel modified least mean-square and recursive least squares algorithms are presented. Finally, it is shown that the proposed adaptive NDFE scheme is robust against frequency offset
