Hyperspectral Unmixing with Gaussian Mixture Model and Low-Rank Representation
AbstractGaussian mixture model (GMM) has been one of the most representative models for hyperspectral unmixing while considering endmember variability. However, the GMM unmixing models only have proper smoothness and sparsity prior constraints on the abundances and thus do not take into account the possible local spatial correlation. When the pixels that lie on the boundaries of different materials or the inhomogeneous region, the abundances of the neighboring pixels do not have those prior constraints. Thus, we propose a novel GMM unmixing method based on superpixel segmentation (SS) and low-rank representation (LRR), which is called GMM-SS-LRR. we adopt the SS in the first principal component of HSI to get the homogeneous regions. Moreover, the HSI to be unmixed is partitioned into regions where the statistical property of the abundance coefficients have the underlying low-rank property. Then, to further exploit the spatial data structure, under the Bayesian framework, we use GMM to formulate the unmixing problem, and put the low-rank property into the objective function as a prior knowledge, using generalized expectation maximization to solve the objection function. Experiments on synthetic datasets and real HSIs demonstrated that the proposed GMM-SS-LRR is efficient compared with other current popular methods. View Full-Text
