## Global convergence of the Heavy-ball method for convex optimization

This paper establishes global convergence and provides global bounds of the convergence rate of the Heavy-ball method for convex optimization problems. When the objective function has Lipschitz-continuous gradient, we show that the Cesa ́ro average of the iterates converges to the optimum at a rate of $O(1/k)$ where k is the number of iterations.
