报告摘要:In finance, risk management, and many other areas, one often has to deal with invalid correlation matrices. Mathematically, a given symmetric matrix is an invalid correlation matrix if and only if its smallest eigenvalue is negative assuming that all its diagonal entries are ones. The question is how to construct a reasonably good correlation matrix from the given invalid one. Statistically, one could argue that such an invalid correlation matrix is not properly formulated and one should use better statistical methods to reconstruct a valid one. However, in practice, it is more often than not that the reformulated correlation matrix contains quite a number of negative eigen-values albeit of small magnitude. There are a number of reasons contributing to this phenomenon: insufficient/ missing raw data, non-synchronous data, human factors, and so on. In this talk we aim to construct an optimal valid correlation matrix of dimensions up to 10,000 by 10,000 from the observed one by using modern non-smooth optimization theory, in particular, on the second order sparsity of the metric projector over the cone of symmetric and positive semi-definite matrices. Computer codes in Matlab/R/Python/C for solving the correlation matrix problems will be made available to the participants. Various extensions shall also be briefly touched.
