An Algebraic Non Orthogonal Joint Block Diagonalization Algorithm for Blind Source Separation of Convolutive Mixtures of Sources

Author(s): Hicham Ghennioui, El Mostafa Fadaili, Nadege Thirion-Moreau, Abdellah Adib, Eric Moreau


This paper deals with the problem of the blind separation of convolutive mixtures of sources. We present a novel method based on a new non orthogonal joint block diagonalization algorithm (NO−JBD) of a given set of matrices. The main advantages of the proposed method are that it is more general and a preliminary whitening stage is no more compulsorily required. The proposed joint block diagonalization algorithm is based on the algebraic optimization of a least mean squares criterion. Computer simulations are provided in order to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach in three cases: when exact blockdiagonal matrices are considered, then when they are progressively perturbed by an additive Gaussian noise and finally when estimated correlation matrices are used. A comparison with a classical orthogonal joint block-diagonalization algorithm is also performed, emphasizing the good performances of the method
