In science:

The method is applied to give simple solutions to difficult questions in low rank matrix estimation, blockmodels, distance matrix completion, latent space models, positive definite matrix completion, problems related to graph limits, and generalized Bradley-Terry models for pairwise comparison.
Matrix estimation by Universal Singular Value Thresholding
Their optimization method involved computing a grid of models near a first guess determined from general scaling arguments and analytical relations developed by Kawaler (1990), Kawaler & Weiss (1990), Brassard et al. (1992), and Bradley, Winget & Wood (1993).
