General description

The independent component (IC) model is a semi-parametric multivariate model where the observable observations are considered to be linear mixtures of unobservable latent variables which have independent components. The goal of independent component analysis (ICA) is to estimate the latent variables.

In this course we will discuss the IC model and its properties as well as introduce several ICA methods.

Related models and methods will also be shortly discussed.

Requirements: Students are expected to have a basic knowledge of multivariate methods and R.
