Publication# Group diffusion LMS

Abstract

Considering groups of variables, rather than variables individually, can be beneficial for estimation accuracy if structural relationships between variables exist (e.g., spatial, hierarchical or related to the physics of the problem). Group-sparsity inducing estimators are typical examples that benefit from such type of prior knowledge. Building on this principle, we show that the diffusion LMS algorithm for distributed inference over networks can be extended to deal with structured criteria built upon groups of variables, leading to a flexible framework that can encode various structures in the parameters to estimate. We also propose an unsupervised online strategy to differentially promote or inhibit collaborations between nodes depending on the group of variables at hand.

Group action

In mathematics, a group action on a space is a group homomorphism of a given group into the group of transformations of the space. Similarly, a group action on a mathematical structure is a group homomorphism of a group into the automorphism group of the structure. It is said that the group acts on the space or structure. If a group acts on a structure, it will usually also act on objects built from that structure. For example, the group of Euclidean isometries acts on Euclidean space and also on the figures drawn in it.

Dihedral group

In mathematics, a dihedral group is the group of symmetries of a regular polygon, which includes rotations and reflections. Dihedral groups are among the simplest examples of finite groups, and they play an important role in group theory, geometry, and chemistry. The notation for the dihedral group differs in geometry and abstract algebra. In geometry, D_n or Dih_n refers to the symmetries of the n-gon, a group of order 2n. In abstract algebra, D_2n refers to this same dihedral group.

Reductive group

In mathematics, a reductive group is a type of linear algebraic group over a field. One definition is that a connected linear algebraic group G over a perfect field is reductive if it has a representation that has a finite kernel and is a direct sum of irreducible representations. Reductive groups include some of the most important groups in mathematics, such as the general linear group GL(n) of invertible matrices, the special orthogonal group SO(n), and the symplectic group Sp(2n).

The arise of disagreement is an emergent phenomenon that can be observed within a growing social group and, beyond a certain threshold, can lead to group fragmentation. To better understand how disagreement emerges, we introduce an analytically tractable m ...
