Thus, the elimination procedure results in an identity matrix rather than a triangular matrix.
We first map the input space into a feature space via non-linear mapping and make the covariance structure of mapped data be an identity matrix to make the problem of ICA estimation simpler and better conditioned (the detail algorithm will be explained later).
