Abstract

Conventional principal component analysis (PCA) minimizes the total error variance, which may be inappropriate for the non-Gaussian distribution systems. In this paper the entropy is proposed as a more general index for PCA model, and then a modified PCA with the optimization for the minimum error entropy via a genetic algorithm (GA) is addressed.
