    This letter presents a new computational procedure for the second-order gradient-based blind signal separation (BSS) problem with convolutive mixtures that has improved convergence characteristics over the steepest descent algorithm. The BSS problem is formulated as a constrained optimization problem with complex unmixing weight matrices where the constraints are formulated to overcome the permutation effects. This problem is then transformed into an unconstrained optimization problem, so that the conjugate gradient algorithm can be applied. The convergence of the proposed procedure is compared with the steepest descent algorithms in real and simulated environments.
