Title:   Anisotropic diffusion maps of sub-manifolds with applications
 
Abstract:
 
We introduce a method for computing extendable independent components of
stochastic data sets generated by nonlinear mixing. The method relies on
the spectral decomposition of a particular type of kernels constructed
from observed data. The independent components are computed for a
surprisingly small sub-sample of the data, and can be efficiently
extended to a much larger set of new observations. We demonstrate our
method performance for the empirical solution of inverse problems in
electro-magnetic measurements of geological formations, and in
Acoustics. This method suggests a general tool for solving empirically
inverse problems.
