On Graduated Optimization for Stochastic Non-Convex Problems

Abstract

The graduated optimization approach, also known as the continuation method, is a popular heuristic to solving non-convex problems that has received renewed interest over the last decade. Despite being popular, very little is known in terms of its theoretical convergence analysis. In this paper we describe a new first-order algorithm based on graduated… (More)
