Abstract : An adaptive algorithm termed Bootstrapped Algorithm is proposed and analyzed, and its performance is evaluated in this report. Using this algorithm as an interference canceler results in structures which are unique in that they are composed of multi-cancelers; each uses the outputs of other cancelers as references (desired signals) or in other forms to further improve performance. As a result of such unique structures, the bootstrapped algorithm is shown to perform as a 'Signal Separator' rather than as an interference canceler. Clearly, because it does not require a reference signal in the form of decision feedback or training sequence, it is sometimes justifiably referred to by the term Blind Separator.
