Report summary: 

Optimization with nonnegative orthogonality constraints has wide applications in machine learning and data sciences. It is NP-hard due to some combinatorial properties of the constraints. In this talk, we shall discuss an exact penalty approach for solving the considered problems. The penalty model can recover the solution if the penalty parameter is sufficiently large other than going to infinity. We establish the convergence of the penalty method under some weak and standard assumptions Extensive numerical results on the orthogonal nonnegative matrix factorization problem and the K-indicators model show the effectiveness of our proposed approaches.
