Abstract

Principal component analysis (PCA) is a transformation technique used to reduce the dimensionality of a dataset. Using delay embedding, it is possible to know a priori how many principal components to choose to obtain the optimum reconstruction. A novel nonlinear PCA-based scheme employing delay embedding is presented for the de-noising of communication signals.
