Abstract : A back-propagation network is compared with principal components regression and prefiltered linear regression to demonstrate its ability to separate overlapped analog signals in high noise environments. Specifically, the signals tested were synthetically generated chemical mixture spectra that simulate the type of data obtained from chromatography and photo-spectrometry. The individual spectrum are heavily overlapped and 30 percent random noise and a random dc has been added to them. The comparisons were made for data sets comprised of two, three, and four overlapping spectrum. Neural networks, Chromatography, Back-propagation.
