This paper is an elaboration of the simplex identification via split augmented Lagrangian (SISAL) algorithm to blindly unmix hyperspectral data. SISAL is a linear hyperspectral unmixing method of the minimum volume class. This method solve a non-convex problem by a sequence of augmented Lagrangian optimizations, where the positivity constraints, forcing the spectral vectors to belong to the convex hull of the endmember signatures, are replaced by soft constraints. With respect to SISAL, we introduce a dimensionality estimation method based on the minimum description length (MDL) principle. The
effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is illustrated with
simulated and real data.
