A novel kernel-based nonlinear unmixing scheme of hyperspectral images
Proc. 45th Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers
In hyperspectral images, pixels are mixtures of spectral components associated to pure materials. Although the linear mixture model is the most studied case, nonlinear models have been taken into consideration to overcome some limitations of the linear model. In this paper, nonlinear hyperspectral unmixing problem is studied through kernel-based learning theory. Endmember components at each band are mapped implicitly in a high feature space, in order to address the nonlinear interaction of photons. Experiment results with both synthetic and real images illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
