Preprocessing for ICA

In the preceding section, we discussed the statistical principles underlying ICA methods. Practical algorithms based on these principles will be discussed in the next section. However, before applying an ICA algorithm on the data, it is usually very useful to do some preprocessing. In this section, we discuss some preprocessing techniques that make the problem of ICA estimation simpler and better conditioned.
