Penalized basis models for very large spatial datasets [article]

Mitchell Krock, William Kleiber, Stephen Becker
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Sparsity in the precision matrix is encouraged using a penalized likelihood framework.  ...  Many modern spatial models express the stochastic variation component as a basis expansion with random coefficients.  ...  The optimal value is then used with the full sample covariance S in (11) to give a best guessQ for the simulated data.  ...

Map approach to learning sparse Gaussian Markov networks

N. Bani Asadi, I. Rish, K. Scheinberg, D. Kanevsky, B. Ramabhadran
2009 2009 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing  
Herein, we propose a maximum a posteriori probability (MAP) approach that investigates different priors on the regularization parameter and yields promising empirical results on both synthetic data and  ...  real-life application such as brain imaging data (fMRI).  ...  Missing edges in the above graphical model correspond to zero entries in the inverse covariance matrix C, and thus the problem of structure learning for the above probabilistic graphical model is equivalent  ...

Sparse estimation of a covariance matrix

J. Bien, R. J. Tibshirani
2011 Biometrika  
In contrast to sparse inverse covariance estimation, our method's close relative, the sparsity attained here is in the covariance matrix itself rather than in the inverse matrix.  ...  We consider a method for estimating a covariance matrix on the basis of a sample of vectors drawn from a multivariate normal distribution.  ...  This method has been referred to in various literatures as the concave-convex procedure, the difference of convex functions algorithm, and multi-stage convex relaxations.  ...

Covariance Prediction via Convex Optimization [article]

Shane Barratt, Stephen Boyd
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The log-likelihood is a concave function of the predictor parameters, so fitting the predictor involves convex optimization.  ...  We describe a covariance predictor that has the form of a generalized linear model, i.e., an affine function of the features followed by an inverse link function that maps vectors to symmetric positive  ...  Acknowledgements The authors gratefully acknowledge conversations and discussions about some of the material in this paper with Misha van Beek, Linxi Chen, David Greenberg, Ron Kahn, Trevor Hastie, Rob  ...

DISCOMAX: A Proximity-Preserving Distance Correlation Maximization Algorithm [article]

Praneeth Vepakomma, Ahmed Elgammal
2017 arXiv   pre-print
The algorithm is iterative and is fomulated as a combination of the majorization-minimization and concave-convex optimization procedures.  ...  Our setting is different from subset-selection algorithms where the problem is to choose the best subset of features for regression.  ...  This leads to the loss being a sum of convex and concave functions which we utilize inorder to minimize it using the Concave Convex Procedure (CCCP) [15] .  ...

Generalized non-linear elastic inversion with constraints in model and data spaces

Philip M. Carrion
1989 Geophysical Journal International  
Non-linear inversion was developed in the frame work of an unconstrained optimization procedure.  ...  Such techniques as the Born inversion were recently applied to seismic data. Non-linear inversion is more complicated and involves extensive calculations.  ...  We can see from this equation that the magnitude of 'noise' will depend on the operator itself and on the value of the data associated with the background model.  ...
