We propose to use precise estimators of mutual information (MI) to find the least dependent components in a linearly mixed signal. On the one hand, this seems to lead to better blind source separation than with any other presently available algorithm. On the other hand, it has the advantage, compared to other implementations of "independent" component(More)
It has been thought that the capture of irregular moons--with non-circular orbits--by giant planets occurs by a process in which they are first temporarily trapped by gravity inside the planet's Hill sphere (the region where planetary gravity dominates over solar tides). The capture of the moons is then made permanent by dissipative energy loss (for(More)
We propose a simulated annealing algorithm (stochastic non-negative independent component analysis, SNICA) for blind decomposition of linear mixtures of non-negative sources with non-negative coefficients. The demixing is based on a Metropolis-type Monte Carlo search for least dependent components, with the mutual information between recovered components as(More)
A recently proposed mutual information based algorithm for decomposing data into least dependent components (MILCA) is applied to spectral analysis, namely to blind recovery of concentrations and pure spectra from their linear mixtures. The algorithm is based on precise estimates of mutual information between measured spectra , which allows to assess and(More)
