In this paper, we introduce a novel procedure for separating an instantaneous mixture of sources based on order statistics. The method is derived in a general context of independence component analysis, using a contrast function defined in term of the Kullback-Leibler divergence or of the mutual information. We introduce a discretized form of this contrast permitting its easy estimation through order statistics. We show that the local contrast property is preserved and derive a global contrast…

A new method based on the first and second order of conditional statistics and modifying it for noisy sensor conditions is introduced, demonstrating that the newly proposed algorithm results in a better result.


A general method to construct contrast functions for blind source separation is presented. It is based on a superadditive functional of class II applied to the distributions of the reconstructed

An iterative method using conditional second-order statistics applied to the blind source separation problem

An iterative method to process the case of sources with the same power spectral density, based on an evaluation of conditional first and second-order statistics only to solve the problem of blind separation of an instantaneous mixture of sources.

Blind source separation using measure on copulas

A novel BSS algorithm for instantaneous mixtures of both independent and dependent sources based on the minimization of Kullback-Leibler divergence between copula densities is introduced, which can efficiently achieve good separation standard BSS methods fail.


This paper develops a new algorithm improving the separation quality for both independent and dependent sources using copulas to accurately model the dependency structure and the Hellinger divergence as a distance measure and it is robust against noisy source signals.

A Bounded Component Analysis approach for the separation of convolutive mixtures of dependent and independent sources

It is shown that the global maximizers of this setting are perfect separators of the convolutive mixtures of sources as an extension of a recent geometric framework introduced for the instantaneous mixing problem.

This paper introduces a procedure for separating a multivariate distribution into nearly independent components based on minimizing a criterion defined in terms of the Kullback-Leibner distance and derives useful forms of this criterion when only a sample from that distribution is available.

Blind separation of mixture of independent sources through a quasi-maximum likelihood approach

We propose two methods for separating mixture of independent sources without any precise knowledge of their probability distribution. They are obtained by considering a maximum likelihood (ML)

The author proposes a blind identification procedure for source signatures in array data without any a priori model for propagation or reception, that is, without directional vector parameterization, provided that the emitting sources are independent with different probability distributions.

Equivariant adaptive source separation

A class of adaptive algorithms for source separation that implements an adaptive version of equivariant estimation and is henceforth called EASI, which yields algorithms with a simple structure for both real and complex mixtures.

Blind signal separation: statistical principles

The objectives of this paper are to review some of the approaches that have been developed to address blind signal separation and independent component analysis, to illustrate how they stem from basic principles, and to show how they relate to each other.

Waveform-preserving blind estimation of multiple independent sources

It is shown that the minimum-variance unbiased estimates can be obtained if and only if the transmission channel can be identified blindly, which suggests that waveform-preserving blind estimation can be achieved over a wide range of signal processing applications, including those cases in which the source signals have identical nonGaussian distributions.

Sources indentification: a solution based on the cumulants

It is noted that the problem of source separation has no solution without a priori information when only the spectral matrix is used. The authors have developed an algorithm using the fourth-order
