In this talk we consider the low-rank matrix completion problem with specific application to forecasting in time series analysis. Briefly, the low-rank matrix completion problem is the problem of imputing missing values of a matrix under a rank constraint. We consider a matrix completion problem for Hankel matrices and a convex relaxation based on the nuclear norm. Based on new theoretical results and a number of numerical and real examples, we investigate the cases when the proposed approach can work. Our results highlight the importance of choosing a proper weighting scheme for the known observations. This work was supported in part by ERC AdG-2013-320594 DECODA.
