Learning Time-Vertex Dictionaries for Estimating Time-Varying Graph Signals

Acar, Abdullah Burak
Vural, Elif
In this work, we study the problem of learning time-vertex dictionaries for the modeling and estimation of time-varying graph signals. We consider a setting with a collection of partially observed time-varying graph signals, and propose a solution for the estimation of the missing signal observations by learning time-vertex dictionaries from the available observations. We adopt a time-vertex dictionary model defined through a set of joint time-vertex spectral kernels, each of which captures a different spectral component of the signals in their joint time-vertex spectrum. The kernel parameters are optimized along with the representations of the signals so as to be coherent with the available signal observations. Experimental results show that the proposed method yields promising estimation performance in comparison with non-adaptive graph dictionary models and baseline classical graph regression methods.

Learning Graph Signal Representations with Narrowband Spectral Kernels
Kar, Osman Furkan; Turhan, Gülce; Vural, Elif (2022-01-01)
In this work, we study the problem of learning graph dictionary models from partially observed graph signals. We represent graph signals in terms of atoms generated by narrowband graph kernels. We formulate an optimization problem where the kernel parameters are learnt jointly with the signal representations under a triple regularization scheme: While the first regularization term aims to control the spectrum of the narrowband kernels, the second term encourages the reconstructed graph signals to vary smoot...
Estimation of Time-Varying Graph Signals by Learning Graph Dictionaries Zamanda Deǧişen Graf Sinyallerinin Kestirimi için Graflarda Sözlük Öǧrenme
Acar, Abdullah Burak; Vural, Elif (2022-01-01)
We study the problem of estimating time-varying graph signals from missing observations. We propose a method based on learning graph dictionaries specified by a set of time-vertex kernels in the joint spectral domain. The parameters of the time-vertex kernels are optimized jointly with the sparse representation coefficients of the signals, so that the learnt representation fits well to the available observations of the time-vertex signals at hand. The missing observations of the signals are then estimated b...
Learning Parametric Time-Vertex Graph Processes from Incomplete Realizations
Guneyi, Eylem Tugce; Canbolat, Abdullah; Vural, Elif (2021-01-01)
© 2021 IEEE.We consider the problem of estimating time-varying graph signals with missing observations, which is of interest in many applications involving data acquisition on irregular topologies. We model time-varying graph signals as jointly stationary time-vertex ARMA graph processes. We formulate the learning of ARMA process parameters as an optimization problem where the joint power spectral density of the model is fit to a rough empirical estimate of the process covariance matrix. We propose a convex...
Investigation of Stationarity for Graph Time Series Data Sets
Güneyi, Eylem Tuğçe; Vural, Elif (2021-01-07)
Graphs permit the analysis of the relationships in complex data sets effectively. Stationarity is a feature that facilitates the analysis and processing of random time signals. Since graphs have an irregular structure, the definition of classical stationarity does not apply to graphs. In this study, we study how stationarity is defined for graph random processes and examine the validity of the stationarity assumption with experiments on synthetic and real data sets.
Learning semi-supervised nonlinear embeddings for domain-adaptive pattern recognition
Vural, Elif (null; 2019-05-20)
We study the problem of learning nonlinear data embeddings in order to obtain representations for efficient and domain-invariant recognition of visual patterns. Given observations of a training set of patterns from different classes in two different domains, we propose a method to learn a nonlinear mapping of the data samples from different domains into a common domain. The nonlinear mapping is learnt such that the class means of different domains are mapped to nearby points in the common domain in order to...
