A Random Matrix Approach to Neural Networks. [article] This
article introduces a new approach to analyze the performance
of large dimensional neural networks by means of random matrix
theory. In this first step towards a deeper understanding of
involved neural networks, we consider a single layer extreme
learning machine and prove the convergence of its performance
as the dataset and number of neurons grow simultanesouly
large. The landmark technical result is to alleviate the
non-linearity of the induced random matrix model by the
exploitation of new concentration of measure arguments.
Kernel Spectral Clustering of Large Dimensional Data.
[article]
This article provides a first analysis of kernel spectral
clustering methods for a mixture of Gaussian data inputs. It
is shown here that, for large dimensional datasets, the
spectral clustering performance relates to the properties of
the isolated eigenvectors in a spiked random matrix models.
Through toy examples, we provide in particular a better
understanding of the role of the kernel function. Applications
to real (non Gaussian) datasets also illustrate a strong
proximity between theory and practice.
Spectral community detection in heterogeneous large
networks. [preprint]
This article proposes a new community detection algorithm for
realistic heterogeneous graphs based on the degree-corrected
stochastic block model. The proposed algorithm generalizes
several classical spectral methods by the addition of a
parameter that can be optimally selected from the degrees of
the graph, and is proved to be asymptotically optimal among
this class of estimators.
The Random Matrix Regime of Maronna's M-estimator with
elliptically distributed samples. [article] In
this article, we provide a first bridge between the theories
of robust estimation and random matrices. We
show in particular that the eigenvalue distribution of a
family of M-estimators of population covariance matrices has
the same first order behavior as a classical random matrix
model. This entails important results such as the natural
extension of random matrix-based detection and estimation
methods, e.g. spectrum-based source detection and power
inference, the G-MUSIC algorithm for DoA estimation, etc.
