内容提要:

Our work develops a regularized tensor quantile regression framework for scalar responses and enables the robust analysis of tensor-variate data. Beyond our presented application to neuroimaging for identifying regions of the hippocampus implicated in Alzheimer's disease, tensor-variate data are ubiquitous in medicine, ecology, and other fields where large volumes of data are collected. The tensor quantile model considered in our work stands separate from previously-established tensor regression frameworks and requires its own theoretical investigation. We establish important statistical properties of our tensor effect estimator and convergence properties of our proposed estimation algorithm. To address the high dimensionality of the tensor quantile model and the non-differentiability of the quantile loss function, we assume that the tensor effect admits a Tucker decomposition and perform estimation using smoothing techniques combined with a block relaxation algorithm. Unlike previous two-stage approaches, our methodology simultaneously considers tensor decomposition and model estimation, ensuring that the decomposition is optimally-predictive of the response.

主讲人的工作为标量响应变量发展了一个正则化张量分位数回归框架,实现了张量变量数据的鲁棒分析。除了用于识别与阿尔茨海默病有关的海马体区域的神经成像应用之外,张量变量数据在医学、生态学等领域无处不在。区别于之前的张量回归框架,主讲人研究了其张量分位数模型特有的理论,包括建立张量效应估计的重要统计性质和提出估计算法的收敛性质。为了解决张量分位数模型的高维度和分位数损失函数的不可微性,主讲人假设张量效应允许Tucker分解,并使用平滑技术和块松弛相结合的算法进行估计。与以前的两阶段方法不同,主讲人的方法同时考虑张量分解和模型估计,实现了响应变量的最佳预测。
