Adaptive Estimation and Statistical Inference for High-Dimensional Graph-Based Linear Models

29 Jan 2020  ·  Wang Duzhe, Loh Po-Ling ·

We consider adaptive estimation and statistical inference for high-dimensional graph-based linear models. In our model, the coordinates of regression coefficients correspond to an underlying undirected graph... Furthermore, the given graph governs the piecewise polynomial structure of the regression vector. In the adaptive estimation part, we apply graph-based regularization techniques and propose a family of locally adaptive estimators called the Graph-Piecewise-Polynomial-Lasso. We further study a one-step update of the Graph-Piecewise-Polynomial-Lasso for the problem of statistical inference. We develop the corresponding theory, which includes the fixed design and the sub-Gaussian random design. Finally, we illustrate the superior performance of our approaches by extensive simulation studies and conclude with an application to an Arabidopsis thaliana microarray dataset. read more
