Краткий обзор статьи: Fast Independent Component Analysis (FastICA) is a component separation algorithm based on the levels of non-Gaussianity. Here we apply the FastICA to the component separation problem of the microwave background including carbon monoxide (CO) line emissions that are found to contaminate the PLANCK High Frequency Instrument (HFI) data. Specifically we prepare 100GHz, 143GHz, and 217GHz mock microwave sky maps including galactic thermal dust, NANTEN CO line, and the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) emissions, and then estimate the independent components based on the kurtosis. We find that the FastICA can successfully estimate the CO component as the first independent component in our deflection algorithm as its distribution has the largest degree of non-Gaussianity among the components. By subtracting the CO and the dust components from the original sky maps, we will be able to make an unbiased estimate of the cosmological CMB angular power spectrum.
