Estimation in the Spiked Wigner Model: A Short Proof of the Replica Formula

We consider the problem of estimating the rank-one perturbation of a Wigner matrix in a setting of low signal-to-noise ratio. This serves as a simple model for principal component analysis in high dimensions. The mutual information per variable …

The Mutual Information in Random Linear Estimation Beyond i.i.d. Matrices

There has been definite progress recently in proving the variational single-letter formula given by the heuristic replica method for various estimation problems. In particular, the replica formula for the mutual information in the case of noisy …

Streaming Bayesian inference: Theoretical limits and mini-batch approximate message-passing

In statistical learning for real-world large-scale data problems, one must often resort to “streaming” algorithms which operate sequentially on small batches of data. In this work, we present an analysis of the information-theoretic limits of …

Statistical and computational phase transitions in spiked tensor estimation

We consider tensor factorizations using a generative model and a Bayesian approach. We compute rigorously the mutual information, the Minimal Mean Square Error (MMSE), and unveil information-theoretic phase transitions. In addition, we study the …

Mutual information in rank-one matrix estimation

We consider the estimation of a n-dimensional vector x from the knowledge of noisy and possibility non-linear element-wise measurements of xxT, a very generic problem that contains, e.g. stochastic 2-block model, submatrix localization or the spike …

The mutual information in random linear estimation

We consider the estimation of a signal from the knowledge of its noisy linear random Gaussian projections, a problem relevant in compressed sensing, sparse superposition codes or code division multiple access just to cite few. There has been a number …
