Abstract: The problem of low-rank approximation and column subset selection of a matrix are usually studied for the Frobenius norm. Nevertheless in practice it is often interesting to study these problems also for l_1 or l_∞. Here we introduce new algorithms for l_p Low-Rank Approximation and non-negative l_1 Column Subset Selection. We start by considering ...
