A common problem encountered in such disciplines as statistics, data analysis, signal processing, and neural network research, is nding a suitable representation of multivariate data. For computational and conceptual simplicity, such a representation is often sought as a linear transformation of the original data. Wellknown linear transformation methods include, for example, principal component analysis, factor analysis, and projection pursuit. A recently developed linear transformation method is independent component analysis (ICA), in which the desired representation is the one that minimizes the statistical dependence of the components of the representation. Such a representation seems to capture the essential structure of the data in many applications. In this paper, we survey the existing theory and methods for ICA. 1

Independent component analysis (ICA) is a statistical method for transforming an observed multidimensional random vector into components that are statistically as independent from each other as possible. In this paper, we use a combination of two different approaches for linear ICA: Comon’s informationtheoretic approach and the projection pursuit approach. Using maximum entropy approximations of differential entropy, we introduce a family of new contrast (objective) functions for ICA. These contrast functions enable both the estimation of the whole decomposition by minimizing mutual information, and estimation of individual independent components as projection pursuit directions. The statistical properties of the estimators based on such contrast functions are analyzed under the assumption of the linear mixture model, and it is shown how to choose contrast functions that are robust and/or of minimum variance. Finally, we introduce simple fixedpoint algorithms for practical optimization of the contrast functions. These algorithms optimize the contrast functions very fast and reliably.

Abstract. Independent Subspace Analysis (ISA; Hyvarinen & Hoyer, 2000) is an extension of ICA. In ISA, the components are divided into subspaces and components in different subspaces are assumed independent, whereas components in the same subspace have dependencies.In this paper we describe a fixedpoint algorithm for ISA estimation, formulated in analogy to FastICA. In particular we give a proof of the quadratic convergence of the algorithm, and present simulations that confirm the fast convergence, but also show that the method is prone to convergence to local minima. 1

Blind signal separation (BSS) and independent component analysis (ICA) are emerging techniques of array processing and data analysis, aiming at recovering unobserved signals or `sources' from observed mixtures (typically, the output of an array of sensors), exploiting only the assumption of mutual independence between the signals. The weakness of the assumptions makes it a powerful approach but requires to venture beyond familiar second order statistics. The objective of this paper is to review some of the approaches that have been recently developed to address this exciting problem, to show how they stem from basic principles and how they relate to each other.

A general tool for multichannel and multipath problems is given in FIR matrix algebra. With Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters (or polynomials) assuming the role played by complex scalars in traditional matrix algebra, we adapt standard eigenvalue routines, factorizations, decompositions, and matrix algorithms for use in multichannel /multipath problems. Using abstract algebra/group theoretic concepts, information theoretic principles, and the Bussgang property, methods of single channel filtering and source separation of multipath mixtures are merged into a general FIR matrix framework. Techniques developed for equalization may be applied to source separation and vice versa. Potential applications of these results lie in neural networks with feedforward memory connections, wideband array processing, and in problems with a multiinput, multioutput network having channels between each source and sensor, such as source separation. Particular applications of FIR polynomial matrix alg...

This paper discusses the application of a modern signal processing technique known as independent component analysis (ICA) or blind source separation to multivariate financial time series such as a portfolio of stocks. The key idea of ICA is to linearly map the observed multivariate time series into a new space of statistically independent components (ICs). This can be viewed as a factorization of the portfolio since joint probabilities become simple products in the coordinate system of the ICs. We apply ICA to three years of daily returns of the 28 largest Japanese stocks and compare the results with those obtained using principal component analysis. The results indicate that the estimated ICs fall into two categories, (i) infrequent but large shocks (responsible for the major changes in the stock prices), and (ii) frequent smaller fluctuations (contributing little to the overall level of the stocks). We show that the overall stock price can be reconstructed surprisingly well by using a small number of thresholded weighted ICs. In contrast, when using shocks derived from principal components instead of independent components, the reconstructed price is less similar to the original one. Independent component analysis is a potentially powerful method of analyzing and understanding driving mechanisms in financial markets. There are further

A number of neural learning rules have been recently proposed... In this paper, we show that in fact, ICA can be performed by very simple Hebbian or antiHebbian learning rules, which may have only weak relations to such informationtheoretical quantities. Rather suprisingly, practically any nonlinear function can be used in the learning rule, provided only that the sign of the Hebbian/antiHebbian term is chosen correctly. In addition to the Hebbianlike mechanism, the weight vector is here constrained to have unit norm, and the data is preprocessed by prewhitening, or sphering. These results imply that one can choose the nonlinearity so as to optimize desired statistical or numerical criteria.

Learning algorithms and underlying basic mathematical ideas are presented for the problem of adaptive blind signal processing, especially instantaneous blind separation and multichannel blind deconvolution/equalization of independent source signals. We discuss recent developments of adaptive learning algorithms based on the natural gradient approach and their properties concerning convergence, stability, and efficiency. Several promising schemas are proposed and reviewed in the paper. Emphasis is given to neural networks or adaptive filtering models and associated online adaptive nonlinear learning algorithms. Computer simulations illustrate the performances of the developed algorithms. Some results presented in this paper are new and are being published for the first time.

In the context of both sensory coding and signal processing, building factorized codes has been shown to be an efficient strategy. In a wide variety of situations, the signal to be processed is a linear mixture of statistically independent sources. Building a factorized code is then equivalent to performing blind source separation. Thanks to the linear structure of the data, this can be done, in the language of signal processing, by finding an appropriate linear filter, or equivalently, in the language of neural modeling, by using a simple feedforward neural network. In this paper we discuss several aspects of the source separation problem. We give simple conditions on the network output which, if satisfied, guarantee that source separation has been obtained. Then we study adaptive approaches, in particular those based on redundancy reduction and maximisation of mutual information. We show how the resulting updating rules are related to the BCM theory of synaptic plasticity. Eventually...
