An equalisation method based on negentropy minimisation is introduced and its characteristics are investigated. Negentropy includes higher order statistical information and its error minimisation provides improved convergence and performance. The bit error ratio of the proposed method has similar characteristics to the adaptive minimum bit error rate (AMBER) equaliser. The main advantage of the proposed equaliser is that it needs drastically fewer training iterations than the AMBER and the MMSE equalisers.
