Spectral Detection in the Censored Block Model

31 Jan 2015  ·  Alaa Saade, Florent Krzakala, Marc Lelarge, Lenka Zdeborová ·

We consider the problem of partially recovering hidden binary variables from the observation of (few) censored edge weights, a problem with applications in community detection, correlation clustering and synchronization. We describe two spectral algorithms for this task based on the non-backtracking and the Bethe Hessian operators... These algorithms are shown to be asymptotically optimal for the partial recovery problem, in that they detect the hidden assignment as soon as it is information theoretically possible to do so. read more
