## Approximating L1-Norm Best-Fit Lines

Sufficient conditions are provided for a deterministic algorithm for estimating an L1-norm best-fit one-dimensional subspace. To prove the conditions are sufficient, fundamental properties of the L1-norm projection of a point onto a one-dimensional subspace are derived. Also, an equivalence is established between the algorithm, which involves the calculation of several weighted medians, and independently-derived algorithms … Read more
