Multiset Canonical Correlation Analysis Using for Blind Source Separation


Article Preview

To solve the problem of blind source separation, a novel algorithm based on multiset canonical correlation analysis is presented by exploiting the different temporal structure of uncorrelated source signals. In contrast to higher order cumulant techniques, this algorithm is based on second order statistical characteristic of observation signals, can blind separate super-Gaussian and sub-Gaussian signals successfully at the same time with relatively light computation burden. Simulation results confirm that the algorithm is efficient and feasible.
