mlpack_nmf — non-negative matrix factorization
mlpack_nmf [-h] [-v]
This program performs non-negative matrix factorization on the given dataset, storing the resulting decomposed matrices in the specified files. For an input dataset V, NMF decomposes V into two matrices W and H such that
V = W * H
where all elements in W and H are non-negative. If V is of size (n x m), then W will be of size (n x r) and H will be of size (r x m), where r is the rank of the factorization (specified by --rank).
Optionally, the desired update rules for each NMF iteration can be chosen from the following list:
- multdist: multiplicative distance-based update rules (Lee and Seung 1999)
- multdiv: multiplicative divergence-based update rules (Lee and Seung 1999)
- als: alternating least squares update rules (Paatero and Tapper 1994)
The maximum number of iterations is specified with --max_iterations, and the minimum residue required for algorithm termination is specified with --min_residue.
Required Input Options
- --input_file (-i) [string]
Input dataset to perform NMF on.
- --rank (-r) [int]
Rank of the factorization.
Optional Input Options
- --help (-h)
Default help info.
- --info [string]
Get help on a specific module or option. Default value ''.
- --max_iterations (-m) [int]
Number of iterations before NMF terminates (0 runs until convergence. Default value 10000.
- --min_residue (-e) [double]
The minimum root mean square residue allowed for each iteration, below which the program terminates. Default value 1e-05.
- --seed (-s) [int]
Random seed. If 0, 'std::time(NULL)' is used. Default value 0. --update_rules (-u) [string] Update rules for each iteration; ( multdist | multdiv | als ). Default value 'multdist'.
- --verbose (-v)
Display informational messages and the full list of parameters and timers at the end of execution.
- --version (-V)
Display the version of mlpack.
Optional Output Options
- --h_file (-H) [string]
File to save the calculated H matrix to. Default value ''.
- --w_file (-W) [string]
File to save the calculated W matrix to. Default value ''.
