We propose a minimax concave penalized multi-armed bandit algorithm under generalized linear model (G-MCP-Bandit) for a decision-maker facing high-dimensional data in an online learning and decision-making process. We demonstrate that the G-MCP-Bandit algorithm asymptotically achieves the optimal cumulative regret in the sample size dimension T, O(log T), and further attains a tight bound in the covariates dimension d, O(log d).

We present a scheme of studying the geometry of high-dimensional data to discover patterns in it, using minimal parametric distributional assumptions. Our approach is to define multivariate quantiles and extremes, and develop a method of center-outward partial ordering of observations. We formulate methods for quantifying relationships among observed variables, thus generalizing the notions of regression and principal components. We devise geometric algorithms for detection of outliers in high dimensions, classification and supervised learning.

High-dimensional multivariate time series are challenging due to the dependent and high-dimensional nature of the data, but in many applications there is additional structure that can be exploited to reduce computing time along with statistical error. We consider high-dimensional vector autoregressive processes with spatial structure, a simple and common form of additional structure. We propose novel high-dimensional methods that take advantage of such structure without making model assumptions about how distance affects dependence.
