A Jacobi-type Newton method for Nash equilibrium problems with descent guarantees

A common strategy for solving an unconstrained two-player Nash equilibrium problem with continuous variables is applying Newton’s method to the system of nonlinear equations obtained by the corresponding first-order necessary optimality conditions. However, when taking into account the game dynamics, it is not clear what is the goal of each player when considering that they … Read more

An accelerated non-Euclidean hybrid proximal extragradient-type Algorithm for convex-concave saddle-point Problems

This paper describes an accelerated HPE-type method based on general Bregman distances for solving monotone saddle-point (SP) problems. The algorithm is a special instance of a non-Euclidean hybrid proximal extragradient framework introduced by Svaiter and Solodov [28] where the prox sub-inclusions are solved using an accelerated gradient method. It generalizes the accelerated HPE algorithm presented … Read more
