Abstract : It is computationally expensive to compute principal components from scratch at every update or downdate when new data arrive and existing data are truncated from the data matrix frequently. To overcome this limitations, incremental principal component analysis is considered. Specifically, we present a sliding window based efficient incremental principal component computation from a covariance matrix which comprises of two procedures; simultaneous update and downdate of principal components, followed by the the rank-one matrix update. Additionally we track the accurate decomposition error and the adaptive numerical rank. Experiments show that the proposed algorithm enables a faster execution speed and no-meaningful decomposition error differences compared to typical incremental principal component analysis algorithms, thereby maintaining a good approximation for the principal components.
