Conventional partial correlation coefficients (PCC) were extended to the non-Gaussian case, in particular to independent component analysis (ICA) models of the observed multivariate samples. Thus, the usual methods that define the pairwise connections of a graph from the precision matrix were correspondingly extended. The basic concept involved replacing the implicit linear estimation of conventional PCC with a nonlinear estimation (conditional mean) assuming ICA. Thus, it is better eliminated the correlation between a given pair of nodes induced by the rest of nodes, and hence the specific connectivity weights can be better estimated. Some synthetic and real data examples illustrate the approach in a graph signal processing context. View Full-Text
