Description

The reloaded and the affine equivariant deflation-based FastICA method for the independent component problem. The function estimates the rows of the unmixing matrix one by one, either in asymptotically optimal order, or so that the objective function is globally maximized at each stage.

Usage

reloaded_fICA(X, g="tanh", dg=NULL, G=NULL, kj=0, method="alpha",
             inR=TRUE, eps=1e-06, maxiter=100)

Arguments

X

a numeric data matrix. Missing values are not allowed.

g

the nonlinearity, tanh by default, see details.

dg

the first derivative of the nonlinearity, see details.

G

the integral of the nonlinearity, see details.

kj

defines the initial estimate of the unmixing matrix, see details.

method

"alpha" or "G", see details.

inR

a logical which indicates whether R or C is used for computations, see details.

eps

convergence tolerance.

maxiter

maximum number of iterations.

Details

The algorithm first finds initial estimates of the sources. The method to find the estimates is decided by the choice of the argument kj. If the value of kj is an integer between 1 and number of the sources, then the method is kj-JADE, otherwise it is FOBI. For the meaning of the value kj used as kj-JADE, see the help for k_JADE.

The function has the argument method, which determines the extraction order of the components. If method="alpha", the components are found in asymptotically optimal order, that is, the reloaded deflation-based FastICA estimate is computed. If method="G", the objective function is globally maximized at each stage.

The standard nonlinearities can be chosen by g="pow3", g="tanh" or g="gaus". These estimates can be computed either in R or in C. In order to use some other nonlinearity, one has to give the nonlinearity and its derivative (and integral if method="G") as functions, and the computations have to be performed in R.

Value

A list with class 'bss' containing the following components:

W

estimated unmixing matrix.

g

nonlinearity used.

alphas

the statistics for the choice of the nonlinearities.

init_est

method that was used for the initial estimate (FOBI or k-JADE).

S

estimated source components standardized to have mean 0 and unit variances.
