Semidefinite Programming Based Preconditioning for More Robust Near-Separable Nonnegative Matrix Factorization

Nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) under the separability assumption can provably be solved efficiently, even in the presence of noise, and has been shown to be a powerful technique in document classification and hyperspectral unmixing. This problem is referred to as near-separable NMF and requires that there exists a cone spanned by a small subset of … Read more
