Tensor Kernel Recovery for Spatio-Temporal Hawkes Processes

Heejune Sheen, Xiaonan Zhu, Yao Xie

We estimate the general influence functions for spatio-temporal Hawkes processes using a tensor recovery approach by formulating the location dependent influence function that captures the influence of historical events as a tensor kernel. We assume a low-rank structure for the tensor kernel and cast the estimation problem as a convex optimization problem using the Fourier transformed nuclear norm (TNN). We provide theoretical performance guarantees for our approach and present an algorithm to solve the optimization problem. We demonstrate the efficiency of our estimation with numerical simulations.
