Successive Rank-One Approximations of Nearly Orthogonally Decomposable Symmetric Tensors

Many idealized problems in signal processing, machine learning and statistics can be reduced to the problem of finding the symmetric canonical decomposition of an underlying symmetric and orthogonally decomposable (SOD) tensor. Drawing inspiration from the matrix case, the successive rank-one approximations (SROA) scheme has been proposed and shown to yield this tensor decomposition exactly, and … Read more

Provable Low-Rank Tensor Recovery

In this paper, we rigorously study tractable models for provably recovering low-rank tensors. Unlike their matrix-based predecessors, current convex approaches for recovering low-rank tensors based on incomplete (tensor completion) and/or grossly corrupted (tensor robust principal analysis) observations still suffer from the lack of theoretical guarantees, although they have been used in various recent applications and … Read more
