Statistical physics of independent component analysis

Accepted: 1 September 2003
Statistical physics is used to investigate independent component analysis with polynomial contrast functions. While the replica method fails, an adapted cavity approach yields valid results. The learning curves, obtained in a suitable thermodynamic limit, display a first-order phase transition from poor to perfect generalization.
