This article provides an overview of tensors, their properties, and their applications in statistics. Tensors, also known as multidimensional arrays, are generalizations of matrices to higher order... 
Jointly Modeling and Clustering Tensors in High Dimensions
In estimation, this work develops an efficient high-dimensional expectation-conditional-maximization (HECM) algorithm that breaks the intractable optimization in the M-step into a sequence of much simpler conditional optimization problems, each of which is convex, admits regularization and has closed-form updating formulas.
Fast and Separable Estimation in High-Dimensional Tensor Gaussian Graphical Models
This work proposes a separable and parallel estimation scheme for high-dimensional and high-order tensors and shows that the new estimator achieves the same minimax optimal convergence rate as the cyclic estimation approaches.
Regularized and Smooth Double Core Tensor Factorization for Heterogeneous Data
A general tensor model suitable for data analytic tasks for heterogeneous data sets, wherein there are joint low-rank structures within groups of observations, but also discriminative structures across different groups, is introduced together with a family of smoothing loss functions.
Tensor extrapolation: an adaptation to data sets with missing entries
Forecasting plays a key role in the optimization of business processes and enables data-driven decision making and tensor extrapolation should be part of the forecaster's toolkit: Even if large parts of the data are missing, the proposed method is able to extract meaningful, latent structure, and to use this information in prediction.
Coupled Support Tensor Machine Classification for Multimodal Neuroimaging Data
A Coupled Support Tensor Machine (C-STM) built upon the latent factors jointly estimated from the Advanced Coupled Matrix Tensor Factorization (ACMTF) is proposed, which can utilize information from multiple sources and provide a better classification performance than traditional single-mode classifiers.
Stochastic Low-rank Tensor Bandits for Multi-dimensional Online Decision Making
Stochastic low-rank tensor bandits are introduced, a class of bandits whose mean rewards can be represented as a low- rank tensor, and a practically Bayesian algorithm called tensor ensemble sampling for Tensor bandits with context is developed.
Improving Sales Forecasting Accuracy: A Tensor Factorization Approach with Demand Awareness
A novel computational approach called the advanced temporal latent factor approach to sales forecasting, or ATLAS, which achieves accurate and individualized predictions for sales by building a single tensor factorization model across multiple stores and products.
Heterogeneous Dense Subhypergraph Detection
An asymptotically powerful test for distinguishing the hypotheses and an adaptive test which does not involve edge probabilities, and hence, is more practically useful.
Community detection in censored hypergraph
A polynomial-time algorithm is proposed to exactly recover the community structure up to the threshold of censored m-uniform hypergraph from information-theoretic point of view and the semi-definite relaxation algorithm is explored.
Sharp detection boundaries on testing dense subhypergraph
The results indicate that the detectable regions for general hypergraph models are dramatically different from their graph counterparts.
