Algorithms for Feature Selection and Pattern Recognition on Grassmann Manifolds
This dissertation presents three distinct application-driven research projects united by ideas and topics from geometric data analysis, optimization, computational topology, and machine learning. We first consider hyperspectral band selection problem solved by using sparse support vector machines (SSVMs). A supervised embedded approach is proposed using the property of SSVMs to exhibit a model structure that includes a clearly identifiable gap between zero and non-zero feature vector weights that permits important bands to be definitively selected in conjunction with the classification problem. ...
