In this paper, it is established finite active-set identification of an almost cyclic 2-coordinate descent method for problems with one linear coupling constraint and simple bounds. First, general active-set identification results are stated for non-convex objective functions. Then, under convexity and a quadratic growth condition (satisfied by any strongly convex function), complexity results on the number of iterations required to identify the active set are given. In our analysis, a simple Armijo line search is used to compute the stepsize, thus not requiring exact minimizations or additional information.
