A PCA based efficient stellar spectra classification method
Qin, DM; Hu, ZY; Zhao, YH
AbstractStellar spectra classification is an indispensable part of any workable automated recognition system of celestial bodies. This paper introduces an efficient method of automated classification of stellar spectra based on the principal component analysis (PCA). The method consists of two parts. In the first part, the eigen-matrix is built by a standard PCA technique where only the first two eigen-vectors are selected due to their predominance. More specifically, the first two eigenvalues are found to always represent more than 95% of the total sum of all the eigenvalues, and much larger than others in our all experiments. The principal component space of stellar (V-1, V-2) then is constructed from the first two eigenvectors. In the second part, namely classification part, an unknown spectrum X is first mapped to a 2D space with the two coordinates defined respectivey as ( V-1(T) X, V-2(T) X), then the nearest neighbor approach in this 2D space is employed to determine the spectral type as well as luminosity class of the input spectrum. The experimental results show that our new method can achieve comparable performance with that by the standard MK spectral types classification criterion, which is regarded as a benchmark in astronomy field. Thanks to its high efficiency, our new method appears promising especially for the processing of spectra in large quantities collected from large survey projects, such as LAMOST project in our country.
