Riemannian optimization on the simplex of positive definite matrices

25 Jun 2019  ·  Bamdev Mishra, Hiroyuki Kasai, Pratik Jawanpuria ·

In this work, we generalize the probability simplex constraint to matrices, i.e., $\mathbf{X}_1 + \mathbf{X}_2 + \ldots + \mathbf{X}_K = \mathbf{I}$, where $\mathbf{X}_i \succeq 0$ is a symmetric positive semidefinite matrix of size $n\times n$ for all $i = \{1,\ldots,K \}$. By assuming positive definiteness of the matrices, we show that the constraint set arising from the matrix simplex has the structure of a smooth Riemannian submanifold... We discuss a novel Riemannian geometry for the matrix simplex manifold and show the derivation of first- and second-order optimization related ingredients. read more
