Title: Maximum likelihood sequence estimation in the presence of co-channel interference

Abstract: A method for conducting an improved approximated maximum likelihood decoding on a received signal on a receiving side, in the presence of a co-channel interference. The method include a determination regarding the maximum likely sequence which uses the improved decision metric in the following format ##EQU1## wherein y.sub.n is the received signal, d.sub.n is the hypothesized received signal excluding an additive channel interference, .beta. is an empirical coefficient, wherein .beta.>1, preferably 0.ltoreq.1, and C is the envelope of a signal of the co-channel interference.
