The Network Based Method Spectral Unmixing Framework
An introduction to the Network Based Method concept regarding the spectral unmixing of hyperspectral images. Bringing together several years of research performed in the unmixing domain, the readers can understand the principles behind the theory of the NBM framework and corresponding algorithms. A comprehensive analysis is also made on the current stateofart of techniques and methods used to spectrally unmix remote sensing/hyperspectral data. The textbook course is intended for researchers, tutors, and students who want to read and understand the mathematical framework of NBM along with corresponding implemented algorithms. The full spectrum of spectral unmixing is covered, i.e. estimation of number of endmembers, endmember extraction, abundance estimation.
