High‐dimensional covariance estimation for Gaussian directed acyclic graph models with given order

Early View

Abstract The covariance matrix is a fundamental quantity that helps us understand the nature of relationships among variables in a multivariate data set. Estimating the covariance matrix can be challenging in modern applications where the number of variables is often larger than the number of samples. In this paper, we review methods which tackle this challenge by inducing sparsity in the Cholesky parameter of the inverse covariance matrix.
