We present a new algorithm for linear spectral mixture analysis, which is capable of supervised unmixing of hyperspectral data while respecting the constraints on the abundance coefficients. This simplex-projection unmixing algorithm is based upon the equivalence of the fully constrained least squares problem and the problem of projecting a point onto a simplex. We introduce several geometrical properties of high-dimensional simplices and combine them to yield a recursive algorithm for solving… CONTINUE READING
