Minimax Programs
 University of California Press
, 1997
"... We introduce an optimization problem called a minimax program that is similar to a linear program, except that the addition operator is replaced in the constraint equations by the maximum operator. We clarify the relation of this problem to some betterknown problems. We identify an interesting spec ..."

The primary focus of this work is optimization algorithms for statistical learning tools and, in particular, the development and implementation of largescale algorithms for sparse principal component analysis (PCA) and kernel optimization. Sparse PCA seeks sparse factors, or linear combinations of the data variables, explaining a maximum amount of variance in the data while having only a limited number of nonzero coefficients. We first enhance a recent first order algorithm for a semidefinite relaxation to sparse PCA using numerically cheaper approximate gradients, allowing us to work with larger data sets. These results are applied to some classic clustering and feature selection problems arising in biology. We next examine classification problems, specifically using support vector machines (SVM), which are heavily dependent on the choice of an input kernel matrix. Kernel learning seeks to improve classification performance by minimizing an upper bound on test error over a set of kernel matrices. Current classification methods, such as SVM, require positive semidefinite kernel matrices. We first address this limitation using kernel learning to incorporate indefinite kernels into SVM, and describe
