Cross-entropy optimization for independent process analysis

We treat the problem of searching for hidden multi-dimensional independent auto-regressive processes. First, we transform the problem to Independent Subspace Analysis (ISA). Our main contribution concerns ISA. We show that under certain conditions, ISA is equivalent to a combinatorial optimization problem. For the solution of this optimization we apply the cross-entropy method. Numerical simulations indicate that the cross-entropy method can provide considerable improvements over other state-of-the-art methods.
