Optimal $\ell_1$ Column Subset Selection and a Fast PTAS for Low Rank Approximation

20 Jul 2020Arvind V. MahankaliDavid P. Woodruff

We study the problem of entrywise $\ell_1$ low rank approximation. We give the first polynomial time column subset selection-based $\ell_1$ low rank approximation algorithm sampling $\tilde{O}(k)$ columns and achieving an $\tilde{O}(k^{1/2})$-approximation for any $k$, improving upon the previous best $\tilde{O}(k)$-approximation and matching a prior lower bound for column subset selection-based $\ell_1$-low rank approximation which holds for any $\text{poly}(k)$ number of columns...
