  • High-dimensional data often lie in low-dimensional subspaces instead of the whole space. Subspace clustering is a problem to analyze data that are from multiple low-dimensional subspaces and cluster them into the corresponding subspaces. In this work, we propose a $(k,k)$-sparse matrix factorization method for subspace clustering. In this method, data itself is considered as the "dictionary", and each data point is represented as a linear combination of the basis of its cluster in the dictionary. Thus, the coefficient matrix is low-rank and sparse. With an appropriate permutation, it is also blockwise with each block corresponding to a cluster. With an assumption that each block is no more than $k$-by-$k$ in matrix recovery, we seek a low-rank and $(k,k)$-sparse coefficient matrix, which will be used for the construction of affinity matrix in spectral clustering. The advantage of our proposed method is that we recover a coefficient matrix with $(k,k)$-sparse and low-rank simultaneously, which is better fit for subspace clustering. Numerical results illustrate the effectiveness that it is better than SSC and LRR in real-world classification problems such as face clustering and motion segmentation.

        Data: $\mathbf{h}\in\mathbb{R}^n$ and the parameter $\alpha$.
        Result: $\mathbf{p}=\underset{\mathbf{g}}{\arg\min}\left\{\frac{1}{2\alpha}(\|\mathbf{g}\|^{sp}_{k})^2+\frac{1}{2}\|\mathbf{g}-\mathbf{h}\|^2_2\right\}$
    1 Let $\tilde{\mathbf{h}}=[\tilde{h}_1,\cdots,\tilde{h}_n]^T$, i.e., $\tilde{h}_i$ is the $i$-th largest element of $|\mathbf{h}|$. Let $\Pi$ be the permutation matrix such that $\tilde{\mathbf{h}}=\Pi|\mathbf{h}|$. For simplicity, define $\tilde{h}_0:=+\infty$, $\tilde{h}_{n+1}:=-\infty$ and $\gamma_{r,l}:=\sum^l_{i=k-r}\tilde{h}_i$
    2 Find $r\in\{0,\cdots,k-1\}$ and $l\in\{k,\cdots,n\}$ such that
                $\frac{\tilde{h}_{k-r-1}}{\alpha+1}>\frac{\gamma_{r, l}}{l-k+(\alpha+1)(r+1)}\ge\frac{\tilde{h}_{k-r}}{\alpha+1}, $
                $\tilde{u}_l>\frac{\gamma_{r, l}}{l-k+(\alpha+1)(r+1)}\ge \tilde{g}_{l+1}.$
    3 Define
                $ q_i = \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} \frac{\alpha}{\alpha+1}\tilde{h}_i & \textrm{if}\; i=1, \cdots, k-r-1\\ \tilde{h}_i-\frac{\gamma_{r, l}}{l-k+(\alpha+1)(r+1)}\\ & \textrm{if}\; i=k-r, \cdots, l\\ 0 & \textrm{if} \; i=l+1, \cdots, n \end{array} \right.$
    4 Set $\mathbf{p}=[p_1,\ldots,p_n]^T$, where $p_i=\mathrm{sign}(h_i)(\Pi^{-1}\mathbf{q})_i$.
