Low rank representations of matrices using nuclear norm heuristics
The pursuit of low dimensional structure from high dimensional data leads in many instances to the finding the lowest rank matrix among a parameterized family of matrices. In its most general setting, this problem is NP-hard. Different heuristics have been introduced for approaching the problem. Among them is the nuclear norm heuristic for rank minimization. One aspect of this thesis is the application of the nuclear norm heuristic to the Euclidean distance matrix completion problem. As a special case, the approach is applied to the graph embedding problem. More generally, semi-definite ...
