DMS Applied Mathematics Seminar

Location: Parker Hall 328

We are fortunate to have Professor Ming-Jun Lai <> from the University of Georgia to speak on the topic of matrix completion <>.

Title: On Recent Development of Matrix Completion.

Abstract:  I shall first introduce the research on matrix completion based on Netflix problem. Then I will survey some classic methods based on various approaches. In particular, I will explain some recent approaches based on alternating minimization methods including least squares, steepest descent, and Riemann gradient descent techniques. Finally, I shall explain our method of Alternating Projection Algorithm and present a convergence analysis under some conditions. Linear convergence will be shown under a sufficient condition. I will end my talk with numerical experimental results to demonstrate our method is excellent in completing a matrix of low rank.
