Grassmann, Flag, and Schubert varieties in applications
MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation develops mathematical tools for signal processing and pattern recognition tasks where data with the same identity is assumed to vary linearly. We build on the growing canon of techniques for analyzing and optimizing over data on Grassmann manifolds. Specifically we expand on a recently developed method referred to as the flag mean that finds an average representation for a collection data that consists of linear subspaces of possibly different dimensions. When prior knowledge exists about relationships between these data, we show that a point analogous to the flag mean can be ...
