Title: Beta Induced Sparsity Algorithm
Author: Fokoue, Ernest
Abstract: We propose a novel technique that exploits some interesting properties of the Beta distribution to derive a sparse solution to the traditional general linear regression under the Gaussian noise assumption. Our proposed technique provides a theoretically, conceptually and computationally better alternative to both the LASSO and the relevance vector machine in the sense that it is centered around an objective function that is convex and easy to interpret. We demonstrate the strength of our proposed technique through examples, and we also provide a theoretical proof of the merits of our method.
