The geometry of (thin) SVD revisited for large-scale computations

Rodolphe Sepulchre
University of Liege, Belgium

The talk will introduce a riemannian framework for large-scale computations over the set of low-rank matrices. The foundation is geometric and the motivation is algorithmic, with a bias towards efficient computations in large-scale problems. We will explore how classical matrix factorizations connect the riemannian geometry of the set of fixed-rank matrices to two well-studied manifolds: the Grassmann manifold of linear subspaces and the cone of positive definite matrices. The theory will be illustrated on various applications, including low-rank Kalman filtering, linear regression with low-rank priors, matrix completion, and the choice of a suitable metric for Diffusion Tensor Imaging.
