Hyperspectral Unmixing with Bandwise Generalized Bilinear Model Li, Chang; Liu, Yu; Cheng, Juan; Song, Rencheng; Peng, Hu; Chen, Qiang; Chen, Xun


Generalized bilinear model (GBM) has received extensive attention in the field of hyperspectral nonlinear unmixing. Traditional GBM unmixing methods are usually assumed to be degraded only by additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN), and the intensity of AWGN in each band of hyperspectral image (HSI) is assumed to be the same. However, the real HSIs are usually degraded by mixture of various kinds of noise, which include Gaussian noise, impulse noise, dead pixels or lines, stripes, and so on. Besides, the intensity of AWGN is usually different for each band of HSI. To address the above mentioned issues, we propose a novel nonlinear unmixing method based on the bandwise generalized bilinear model (NU-BGBM), which can be adapted to the presence of complex mixed noise in real HSI. Besides, the alternative direction method of multipliers (ADMM) is adopted to solve the proposed NU-BGBM. Finally, extensive experiments are conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed NU-BGBM compared with some other state-of-the-art unmixing methods.
