  title={Semiparametric Tensor Factor Analysis by Iteratively Projected SVD},
  author={Elynn Y. Chen and Dong Xia and Chencheng Cai and Jianqing Fan},
  journal={arXiv: Methodology},
This paper introduces a general framework of Semiparametric TEnsor FActor analysis (STEFA) that focuses on the methodology and theory of low-rank tensor decomposition with auxiliary covariates. STEFA models extend tensor factor models by incorporating instrumental covariates in the loading matrices. We propose an algorithm of Iteratively Projected SVD (IP-SVD) for the semiparametric estimations. It iteratively projects tensor data onto the linear space spanned by covariates and applies SVD on…

Tucker tensor factor models for high-dimensional higher-order tensor observations
Two sets of PCA based estimation procedures are proposed, including mainly convergence rates and asymptotic distributions of estimators of loading matrices, latent tensor factors and signal parts, which outperform existing auto-covariance based methods for tensor time series in terms of effects of estimation and tensor reconstruction.
