In ptychography experiments, redundant scanning is usually required to guarantee the stable recovery, such that a huge amount of frames are generated, and thus it poses a great demand of parallel computing in order to solve this large-scale inverse problem. In this paper, we propose the overlapping Domain Decomposition Methods (DDMs) to solve the nonconvex optimization problem in ptychographic imaging, that decouple the problem defined on the whole domain into subproblems only defined on the… 


Blind Ptychographic Phase Retrieval via Convergent Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers
This article addresses a nonlinear least squares model for the blind ptychography problem with constraints on the image and the probe by maximum likelihood estimation of the Poisson noise model and proposes a generalized alternating direction method of multipliers designed for the proposed nonconvex models with convergence guarantee under mild conditions.
Domain Decomposition Methods for Nonlocal Total Variation Image Restoration
Numerical examples demonstrate that the proposed methods can efficiently solve the nonlocal TV based image restoration problems, such as denoising, deblurring and inpainting, with a considerable speedup ratio and speedup efficiency.
Proximal Heterogeneous Block Implicit-Explicit Method and Application to Blind Ptychographic Diffraction Imaging

Partially coherent ptychography by gradient decomposition of the probe.
The gradient decomposition of the probe (GDP) is proposed, a model that exploits translational kernel separability, coupling the variances of the kernel with the transverse coherence, in order to solve the proposed nonlinear optimization problem of GDP-ADMM.
A parallel domain decomposition algorithm for large scale image denoising
Total variation denoising (TVD) is an effective technique for image denoising, in particular, for recovering blocky, discontinuous images from noisy background. The problem is formulated as an

Parallel ptychographic reconstruction.
A parallel method for real-time ptychographic phase retrieval that uses a hybrid parallel strategy to divide the computation between multiple graphics processing units (GPUs) and then employs novel techniques to merge sub-datasets into a single complex phase and amplitude image.
A convergent overlapping domain decomposition method for total variation minimization
This paper provides several numerical experiments, showing the successful application of the algorithm for the restoration of 1D signals and 2D images in interpolation/inpainting problems and in a compressed sensing problem, for recovering piecewise constant medical-type images from partial Fourier ensembles.
Convergence Rate of Overlapping Domain Decomposition Methods for the Rudin-Osher-Fatemi Model Based on a Dual Formulation
The main objective of this paper is to rigorously analyze the convergence of the SSC and PSC algorithms and derive the rate of convergence O(n −1/2 ), where n is the number of iterations and the explicit dependence of the convergence rate on the subdomain overlapping size and other important parameters is characterized.
