A Generalized Proximal Point Algorithm and its Convergence Rate

We propose a generalized proximal point algorithm (PPA), in the generic setting of finding a zero point of a maximal monotone operator. In addition to the classical PPA, a number of benchmark operator splitting methods in PDE and optimization literatures such as the Douglas-Rachford splitting method, Peaceman-Rachford splitting method, alternating direction method of multipliers, generalized … Read more
