Convex Latent Effect Logit Model via Sparse and Low-rank Decomposition

  title={Convex Latent Effect Logit Model via Sparse and Low-rank Decomposition},
  author={Hongyuan Zhan and Kamesh Madduri and Venkataraman N. Shankar},
In this paper, we propose a convex formulation for learning logistic regression model (logit) with latent heterogeneous effect on sub-population. In transportation, logistic regression and its variants are often interpreted as discrete choice models under utility theory (McFadden, 2001). Two prominent applications of logit models in the transportation domain are traffic accident analysis and choice modeling. In these applications, researchers often want to understand and capture the individual…

Bayesian nonparametric estimation and consistency of mixed multinomial logit choice models

This paper develops nonparametric estimation for discrete choice models based on the Mixed Multinomial Logit (MMNL) model. It has been shown that MMNL models encompass all discrete choice models

The Mixed Logit model: The state of practice

The mixed logit model is considered to be the most promising state of the art discrete choice model currently available, but estimation and data issues are far from clear and possibly for the first time there is an estimation method that requires extremely high quality data.

Latent variable graphical model selection via convex optimization

The modeling framework can be viewed as a combination of dimensionality reduction and graphical modeling (to capture remaining statistical structure not attributable to the latent variables) and it consistently estimates both the number of hidden components and the conditional graphical model structure among the observed variables.

Estimation code for "Random taste heterogeneity in discrete choice models: Flexible nonparametric finite mixture distributions"

This study proposes a mixed logit model with multivariate nonparametric finite mixture distributions. The support of the distribution is specified as a high-dimensional grid over the coefficient

Fitting Nonparametric Mixed Logit Models via Expectation-Maximization Algorithm

In this article, I provide an illustrative, step-by-step implementation of the expectation-maximization algorithm for the nonparametric estimation of mixed logit models. In particular, the proposed


SUMMARY When modeling demand for differentiated products, it is vital to adequately capture consumer taste heterogeneity, But there is no clearly preferred approach. Here, we compare the performance
