Independent component analysis is a generative model for observed multivariate data, which are assumed to be mixtures of some unknown latent variables. It is a statistical and computational technique for revealing hidden factors that underlies set of random variable measurements of signals. A common problem faced in the disciplines such as statistics, data analysis, signal processing and neural network is finding a suitable representation of multivariate data. The objective of ICA is to represent a set of multidimensional measurement vectors in a basis where the components are statistically independent. In the present paper we deal with a set of images that are mixed randomly. We apply the principle of uncorrelatedness and minimum entropy to find ICA. The original images are then retrieved using fixed point algorithm known as FastICA algorithm and compared with the original images with the help of estimated error. The outputs from the intermediate steps of algorithm such as PCA, Whitening matrix, Convergence of algorithm and dewhitening matrix are also discussed.
