Low-rank Multi-view Clustering in Third-Order Tensor Space

The plenty information from multiple views data as well as the complementary information among different views are usually beneficial to various tasks, e.g., clustering, classification, de-noising. Multi-view subspace clustering is based on the fact that the multi-view data are generated from a latent subspace. To recover the underlying subspace structure, the success of the sparse and/or low-rank subspace clustering has been witnessed recently. Despite some state-of-the-art subspace clustering approaches can numerically handle multi-view data, by simultaneously exploring all possible pairwise correlation within views, the high order statistics is often disregarded which can only be captured by simultaneously utilizing all views. As a consequence, the clustering performance for multi-view data is compromised. To address this issue, in this paper, a novel multi-view clustering method is proposed by using \textit{t-product} in third-order tensor space. Based on the circular convolution operation, multi-view data can be effectively represented by a \textit{t-linear} combination with sparse and low-rank penalty using "self-expressiveness". Our extensive experimental results on facial, object, digits image and text data demonstrate that the proposed method outperforms the state-of-the-art methods in terms of many criteria.
