This letter extends the constrained band selection (CBS) technique to constrained band subset selection (CBSS) in a similar manner that constrained energy minimization has been extended to linearly constrained minimum variance. CBSS constrains multiple bands as a band subset as opposed to CBS constraining a single band as a singleton set. To achieve this goal, CBSS requires a strategy to search for an optimal band subset, while CBS does not. In this letter, two new sequential algorithms, referred to as sequential CBSS and successive CBSS, which do not exist in CBS are derived for CBSS to find desired band subsets and to avoid exhaustive search.
