报告摘要:

In this talk, we propose two new methods to solve the problem of constructing sparse multiclass classifiers and determining corresponding discriminative variables for each pair of classes simultaneously in the high-dimensional setting. In contrast to many existing multiclass classifiers, which can only select informative variables for classification, we can understand roles of the selected variables in separating particular pairs of classes more profoundly by using different penalties. Different from  Guo (2010, Biostatistics) and Xu et al. (2015, Biometrika), which are based on the separate estimation of the precision matrix and mean vectors, we propose to construct classifiers by estimating products of the precision matrix and mean vectors or all discriminant directions directly with more appropriate penalties. This leads to the use of the distance criterion instead of the log-likelihood used in existing literature. With the proposed methods, we can not only consistently select informative variables for classification but also consistently identify corresponding discriminative variables for each pair of classes.  More importantly, our methods attain asymptotically the optimal misclassification error rate for multiclass classification problems, which is not investigated in Guo (2010) and Xu et al. (2015). Simulations and the real data analysis well demonstrate good performances of our methods in comparison with existing methods.
