Dear Maria,
I have found this note by chance, because I do not follow all the 
traffic in the GRASS mailing list.
I have to admit I have some difficulties to grasp the meaning of the 
steps you describe, for example the abbreviations PR and RRN, will have 
to read the articles you mention first. Generally, if the process 
includes radiometric normalization, and correlation-based normalization 
is applicable, use of my script should be possible.
But for now, I have found full text of the article Baig et al., 2014, on 
Hope it  helps.

Generally it can be done by the finding of best alignment of pca matrix created in step2 with previously created (in step1) dummy target. Such a way: - more then 4 TC components should be included to i.tasscap - some kind of raster comparison and relative normalization must be done, I guess, but I don't know, what tool exactly should be used.

> Get TC-coefficients by applying i.mapcalc to original Landsat data and resulting PR rotated data   Such a way, TC coefficients arise from: PCA axes rotation coefficients PR of PCA matrix coefficients.
>    P.S.: TCT of Landsat MSS data can be done as I see only by Jackson's algorithm. So still hoping for any help with these two TCT algorithms.
