Editorial Reviews

Review

Independent component analysis is a recent and powerful addition to the methods that scientists and engineers have available to explore large data sets in high-dimensional spaces. This book is a clearly written introduction to the foundations of ICA and the practical issues that arise in applying it to a wide range of problems.

(Terrence J. Sejnowski, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and University of California, San Diego)

This fantastic book provides a broad introduction to both the theory and applications of independent component analysis. I recommend it to any student interested in exploring this emerging field.

(Martin J. McKeown, Associate Professor of Medicine (Neurology), University of British Columbia)

This monograph provides a delightful tour, through the foothills of linear algebra to the higher echelons of independent components analysis, in a graceful and deceptively simple way. Its careful construction, introducing concepts as they are needed, discloses the fundamentals of source separation in a remarkably accessible and comprehensive fashion.

(Karl J. Friston, University College London)

Without this book I would never have understood the basics and finesses of ICA. Even if readers ar highly skilled in math reading this book will set out mile'stones' that will enhance the understanding of the ICA- problem, -tools and -possibilities.

This is a good introduction to the topic. You will learn fast, and with relevant examples. Unfortunately, I found a bunch of errors/typos in the formulas. I'm afraid this may defeat the purpose of introducing the novice to this topic. I can understand typos in a monograph are of little consequence, since the readership is already expert. However, this is an intro book; the last thing you want is a bunch of errors that mislead the novice.

You might be led to believe while looking at the contents that this is an elementary treatment. Beware. This may look like that, but really if you skip those portions, this is an insightful pack. It contains a lot of insights, but may not be rigorous on theory. The intuition you get is however remarkable, and can lead to a string of future exploits.

This excellent book introduces the reader in the field of Independent Component Analysis providing the necessary fundamentals to understand and apply the different methods. The book also makes interesting links to other techniques. The author has succeeded at writing a very didactic text, not an easy task given the complexity of the matter, and at transmitting his enthusiasm to the reader.
I've enjoyed this book, which has been not only an introduction to ICA but which has brought me into ICA, stimulating my own experimentation with the technique.

Eases the reader gradually through the foundations of ICA and treats various published methods in a contrasting manner. No other reference is needed while reading the book; he even gives the pronounciation of some of the greek letters in footnotes.
