### Optimal and Adaptive Estimation of Extreme Values in the Permuted Monotone Matrix Model. (arXiv:1911.12516v1 [math.ST])

Motivated by applications in metagenomics, we consider the permuted monotone matrix model $Y=\Theta\Pi+Z$, where $Y\in \mathbb{R}^{n\times p}$ is observed, $\Theta\in \mathbb{R}^{n\times p}$ is an unknown signal matrix with monotone rows, $\Pi \in \mathbb{R}^{p\times p}$ is an unknown permutation matrix, and $Z\in \mathbb{R}^{n\times p}$ is the noise matrix. This paper studies the estimation of the extreme…
