## An adaptive superfast inexact proximal augmented Lagrangian method for smooth nonconvex composite optimization problems

This work presents an adaptive superfast proximal augmented Lagrangian (AS-PAL) method for solving linearly-constrained smooth nonconvex composite optimization problems. At each iteration, AS-PAL inexactly solves a possibly nonconvex proximal augmented Lagrangian subproblem with prox stepsize chosen aggressively large so as to speed up its termination. An adaptive ACG variant of FISTA, namely R-FISTA, is then … Read more
