Dimension Independent Similarity Computation using MapReduce (DIMSUM)

Dec 10, 2014 Colloquium

We compute the singular values of an m x n sparse matrix A in a distributed setting, without communication dependence on m, which is useful for very large m. In particular, we give a simple nonadaptive sampling scheme where the singular values of A are estimated within relative error with ... Read more
