Paper No: 107

Estimator for Number of Sources using Minimum Description Length Criterion for Blind Sparse Source Mixtures

Author(s): Radu Balan


In this paper I present a Minimum Description Length Estimator for number of sources in an anechoic mixture of sparse signals. The criterion is roughly equal to the sum of negative normalized maximum log-likelihood and the logarithm of number of sources. Numerical evidence supports this approach and compares favorabily to both the Akaike (AIC) and Bayesian (BIC) Information Criteria.
