Several decades ago the Proximal Point Algorithm (PPA) started to gain a long-lasting attraction for both abstract operator theory and numerical optimization communities. Even in modern applications, researchers still use proximal minimization theory to design scalable algorithms that overcome nonsmoothness. Remarkable works as [9,4,5,51] established tight relations between the convergence behaviour of PPA and the regularity of the objective function. In this manuscript we derive nonasymptotic…

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- 2020

An adaptive generalized proximal point algorithm (AGPPA), which adaptively updates the proximal regularization parameters based on some implementable criteria, and it is shown that AGPPA achieves linear convergence without any knowledge of the error bound condition parameter, and the rate only differs from the optimal one by a logarithm term.

A new merit function is proposed for proximal point subproblems associated with the variational inequality problem, based on Burachik-Iusem-Svaiter’s concept of ε-enlargement of a maximal monotone operator, which preserves all the desirable global and local convergence properties of the classical exact/inexact method.

This manuscript derives new convergence results for several subgradient methods applied to minimizing nonsmooth convex functions with Hölderian growth and develops an adaptive variant of the “descending stairs” stepsize which achieves the same convergence rate without requiring an error bound constant which is difficult to estimate in practice.

A new framework of Bi-Level Unconstrained Minimization (BLUM) for development of accelerated methods in Convex Programming, and presents new methods with the exact auxiliary search procedure, which have the rate of convergence O(k^{−(3p+1)/2}), where p ≥ 1 is the order of the proximal operator.

It is shown that the convergence rate of the exact accelerated algorithm 1/k2 can be recovered by constraining the errors to be of a certain type, and the strategy proposed in [14] for generating estimate sequences according to the definition of Nesterov is generalized.

- MathematicsMath. Program.

It is shown that error bounds can be used as effective tools for deriving complexity results for first-order descent methods in convex minimization and how KL inequalities can in turn be employed to compute new complexity bounds for a wealth of descent methods for convex problems.
