In hyperspectral unmixing, the objective is to decompose an electromagnetic spectral dataset measured over M spectral bands and T pixels, into N constituent material spectra (or “endmembers”) with corresponding spatial abundances. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to hyperspectral unmixing (i.e., joint estimation of endmembers and abundances) based on loopy belief propagation. In particular, we employ the bilinear generalized approximate message passing algorithm (BiG-AMP), a recently proposed belief-propagation-based approach to matrix factorization, in a “turbo” framework that enables the exploitation of spectral coherence in the endmembers, as well as spatial coherence in the abundances. In conjunction, we propose an expectation- maximization (EM) technique that can be used to automatically tune the prior statistics assumed by turbo BiG-AMP. Numerical experiments on synthetic and real-world data confirm the state-of-the-art performance of our approach.
