Primal-Dual methods for sparse constrained matrix completion
Yu Xin, Tommi Jaakkola ; JMLR W&CP 22: 1323-1331, 2012.
We develop scalable algorithms for regular and non-negative matrix completion. In particular, we base the methods on trace-norm regularization that induces a low rank predicted matrix. The regularization problem is solved via a constraint generation method that explicitly maintains a sparse dual and the corresponding low rank primal solution. We provide a new dual block coordinate descent algorithm for solving the dual problem with a few spectral constraints. Empirical results illustrate the effectiveness of our method in comparison to recently proposed alternatives.
