AbstractWe address the correspondence problem which arises when applying empirical mode decomposition (EMD) to multi-trial and multi-subject data. EMD decomposes a signal into a set of narrow-band components named intrinsic mode functions (IMFs). The number of IMFs and their signal properties can be different between trials, channels and subjects. In order to assign IMFs with similar characteristics to each other, we compare two assignment methods, unbalanced assignment and k-cardinality
