A novel adaptive technique is proposed for the complex-valued modified probabilistic neural network (MPNN). The adaptive feature is desirable when using the MPNN in channel equalization to track time-varying channels. The MPNN is initially trained using the clustering technique. When training is completed, the network is switched to decision-directed mode and the network parameters are adapted using stochastic gradient-based algorithms in an unsupervised manner. Simulations show that the equalizer was able to efficiently equalize 4-QAM symbol sequences transmitted through nonlinear, slowly time-varying channels.
