# A Simplified Form of Block-Iterative Operator Splitting , and an Asynchronous Algorithm Resembling the Multi-Block ADMM ∗

@inproceedings{Eckstein2016ASF, title={A Simplified Form of Block-Iterative Operator Splitting , and an Asynchronous Algorithm Resembling the Multi-Block ADMM ∗}, author={Jonathan Eckstein}, year={2016} }

This paper develops what is essentially a simplified version of the block-iterative operator splitting method already proposed by the author and P. Combettes, but with more general initialization conditions. It then describes one way of implementing this algorithm asynchronously under a computing model inspired by modern HPC environments, which consist of interconnected nodes each having multiple processor cores sharing a common local memory. The asynchronous implementation framework is then…

A way of “eliciting” convexity or monotonicity is developed which supports a procedure called the progressive decoupling algorithm, which is derived from the proximal point algorithm through passing to a partial inverse, localizing and rescaling.

### Understanding the Convergence of the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers: Theoretical and Computational Perspectives

- Computer Science
- 2015

This paper tries to give an accessible version of the “operator splitting” versions of the ADMM convergence proof, first developing some analytical tools that are used to analyze a simple variant of the classical augmented Lagrangian method, and assuming relatively little prior knowledge of convex analysis.

### Asynchronous Distributed ADMM for Large-Scale Optimization—Part I: Algorithm and Convergence Analysis

- Computer ScienceIEEE Transactions on Signal Processing
- 2016

This paper proposes an asynchronous distributed ADMM (AD-ADMM), which can effectively improve the time efficiency of distributed optimization, and analyzes the convergence conditions of the AD- ADMM, under the popular partially asynchronous model, which is defined based on a maximum tolerable delay of the network.

### Asynchronous block-iterative primal-dual decomposition methods for monotone inclusions

- MathematicsMath. Program.
- 2018

This work proposes new primal-dual decomposition algorithms for solving systems of inclusions involving sums of linearly composed maximally monotone operators, and presents two related methods: the first method provides weakly convergent primal and dual sequences under general conditions, while the second is a variant in which strong convergence is guaranteed without additional assumptions.

### Asynchronous Distributed ADMM for Consensus Optimization

- Computer ScienceICML

An asynchronous ADMM algorithm is proposed by using two conditions to control the asynchrony: partial barrier and bounded delay and achieves faster convergence than its synchronous counterpart in terms of the wall clock time.

### A family of projective splitting methods for the sum of two maximal monotone operators

- MathematicsMath. Program.

The projective algorithms converge under more general conditions than prior splitting methods, allowing the proximal parameter to vary from iteration to iteration, and even from operator to operator, while retaining convergence for essentially arbitrary pairs of operators.

D-ADMM is proven to converge when the network is bipartite or when all the functions are strongly convex, although in practice, convergence is observed even when these conditions are not met.
