Low-Rank Matrix Completion using Nuclear Norm with Facial Reduction

Minimization of the nuclear norm is often used as a surrogate, convex relaxation, for finding the minimum rank completion (recovery) of a partial matrix. The minimum nuclear norm problem can be solved as a trace minimization semidefinite programming problem (\SDP). The \SDP and its dual are regular in the sense that they both satisfy strict … Read more

Low-rank matrix completion via preconditioned optimization on the Grassmann manifold

We address the numerical problem of recovering large matrices of low rank when most of the entries are unknown. We exploit the geometry of the low-rank constraint to recast the problem as an unconstrained optimization problem on a single Grassmann manifold. We then apply second-order Riemannian trust-region methods (RTRMC 2) and Riemannian conjugate gradient methods … Read more
