Principal component analysis (PCA) and Minor component analysis (MCA) are similar but have different dynamical performances. Unexpectedly, a sequential extraction algorithm for MCA proposed by Luo and Unbehauen  does not work for MCA, while it works for PCA. We propose a different sequential-addition algorithm which works for MCA. We also show a conversion mechanism by which any PCA algorithms are converted to dynamically equivalent MCA algorithms and vice versa.
