Description: OptShrink: an algorithm for improved low-rank signal matrix denoising by optimal, data-driven singular value shrinkage. OptShrink is a simple, completely data-driven algorithm for denoising a low-rank signal matrix buried in noise. It takes as its input the signal-plus-noise matrix, an estimate of the signal matrix rank and returns as an output the improved signal matrix estimate. It computes this estimate by shrinking the singular values corresponding to the Truncated SVD (TSVD) in the correct manner as given by random matrix theory. It can be used in the missing data setting and for a large class of noise models for which the i.i.d. Gaussian setting is a special case. There are no tuning parameters involved so it can be used in a black-box manner wherever improving low-rank matrix estimation is desirable. The algorithm outperforms the truncated SVD (TSVD) significantly in the low to moderate SNR regime and will never do worse than the TSVD. The theory also explains why it will always do better than singular value thresholding.
