Robust Geodesic Regression

  title={Robust Geodesic Regression},
  author={Ha-Young Shin and Hee-Seok Oh},
This paper studies robust regression for data on Riemannian manifolds. Geodesic regression is the generalization of linear regression to a setting with a manifold-valued dependent variable and one or more real-valued independent variables. The existing work on geodesic regression uses the sum-of-squared errors to find the solution, but as in the classical Euclidean case, the least-squares method is highly sensitive to outliers. In this paper, we use M-type estimators, including the $L_1$, Huber…

Geo-FARM: Geodesic Factor Regression Model for Misaligned Pre-shape Responses in Statistical Shape Analysis
A comprehensive geodesic factor regression model is proposed, incorporating alignment step within the proposed regression model and learns them using both pre-shape and covariate data, including latent factors on the tangent space and isotropic error terms.

Multivariate Regression with Gross Errors on Manifold-Valued Data
A new regression model to deal with the presence of grossly corrupted manifold-valued responses, a bottleneck issue commonly encountered in practical scenarios is proposed, and its convergence property is investigated, where it is shown to converge to a critical point under mild conditions.
Multivariate General Linear Models (MGLM) on Riemannian Manifolds with Applications to Statistical Analysis of Diffusion Weighted Images
The variational algorithm efficiently solves for multiple geodesic bases on the manifold concurrently via gradient updates and allows us to answer questions such as: what is the relationship of the measurement at voxel y to disease when conditioned on age and gender.
Principal geodesic analysis for the study of nonlinear statistics of shape
The method of principal geodesic analysis is developed, a generalization of principal component analysis to the manifold setting and demonstrated its use in describing the variability of medially-defined anatomical objects.

Regression Models on Riemannian Symmetric Spaces.
A general regression framework for the analysis of manifold-valued response in a Riemannian symmetric space and its association with multiple covariates of interest, such as age or gender, in Euclidean space is developed.
A Nonlinear Regression Technique for Manifold Valued Data with Applications to Medical Image Analysis
A novel nonlinear kernel-based regression method that is applicable to manifold valued data that is tested on a large number of real data sets acquired from Alzhiemers and movement disorder patients.
Parametric Regression on the Grassmannian
The utility of the proposed solution to intrinsic parametric regression on different vision problems, such as shape regression as a function of age, traffic-speed estimation and crowd-counting from surveillance video clips, can be conveniently solved.
