Abstract / truncated to 115 words (read the full abstract)

In many fields, such as linear algebra, computational geometry, combinatorial optimization, analytical chemistry and geoscience, nonnegativity of the solution is required, which is either due to the fact that the data is physically nonnegative, or that the mathematical modeling of the problem requires nonnegativity. Image and audio processing are two examples for which the data are physically nonnegative. Probability and graph theory are examples for which the mathematical modeling requires nonnegativity. This thesis is about the nonnegative factorization of matrices and tensors: namely nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) and nonnegative tensor factorization (NTF). NMF problems arise in a wide range of scenarios such as the aforementioned fields, and NTF problems arise as a generalization of NMF. ... toggle 7 keywords
