# Chi-squared Amplification: Identifying Hidden Hubs

12 Aug 2016Ravi KannanSantosh Vempala

We consider the following general hidden hubs model: an $n \times n$ random matrix $A$ with a subset $S$ of $k$ special rows (hubs): entries in rows outside $S$ are generated from the probability distribution $p_0 \sim N(0,\sigma_0^2)$; for each row in $S$, some $k$ of its entries are generated from $p_1 \sim N(0,\sigma_1^2)$, $\sigma_1>\sigma_0$, and the rest of the entries from $p_0$. The problem is to identify the high-degree hubs efficiently... (read more)
