Robust Lasso‐Zero for sparse corruption and model selection with missing covariates

Abstract

We propose Robust Lasso-Zero, an extension of the Lasso-Zero methodology, initially introduced for sparselinear models, to the sparse corruptions problem. We give theoretical guarantees on the sign recovery of the parameters for a slightly simplified version of the estimator, called Thresholded Justice Pursuit. The use of Robust Lasso-Zero is showcased for variable selection with missing values in the covariates. In addition to not requiring the specification of a model for the covariates, nor estimating their covariance matrix or the noise variance, the method has the great advantage of han-dling missing not-at random values without specifying a parametric model. Numerical experiments and amedical application underline the relevance of Robust Lasso-Zero in such a context with few available competitors. The method is easy to use and implemented in the R library lass0.
