The aim of this paper was to provide a derivation to explain the performance of the second-order-based blind signal separation (BSS) in reverberant environments. In particular, the second-order-based BSS algorithm, which exploits non-stationarity of the input signals, is investigated. The derivation provides a quantitative link between the reverberation parameter of the environment with the cost function of the BSS. Importantly, the theoretical finding complements existing literature on the interpretation of BSS and provides incremental insight to its performance.
