### Abstract

Abstract — In this paper, we briefly review recent advances in blind source separation (BSS) for nonlinear mixing models. After a general introduction to the nonlinear BSS and ICA (independent Component Analysis) problems, we discuss in more detail uniqueness issues, presenting some new results. A fundamental difficulty in the nonlinear BSS problem and even more so in the nonlinear ICA problem is that they are nonunique without extra constraints, which are often implemented by using a suitable regularization. Post-nonlinear mixtures are an important special case, where a nonlinearity is applied to linear mixtures. For such mixtures, the ambiguities are essentially the same as for the linear ICA or BSS problems. In the later part of this paper, various separation techniques proposed for post-nonlinear mixtures and general nonlinear mixtures are reviewed. I. THE NONLINEAR ICA AND BSS PROBLEMS Consider Æ samples of the observed data vector Ü, modeled by
