Title

Structurally-Constrained Estimations: Applications and Theories


Abstract

High-dimensional inference deals with models in which the number of parameters p is substantially larger than the number of training data n. In this talk, we will discuss recent advances in the analysis of M-estimators for high-dimensional data. Specifically, we review a unified framework for establishing consistency and convergence rates for regularized estimators. After that, we will introduce a unified framework for the high-dimensional analysis of "superposition-structured" or "dirty" models, and its examples such as robust PCA.
