Activity Identification and Local Linear Convergence of Douglas-Rachford/ADMM under Partial Smoothness

Proximal splitting algorithms are becoming popular to solve convex optimization problems in variational image processing. Within this class, Douglas-Rachford (DR) and ADMM are designed to minimize the sum of two proper lower semicontinuous convex functions whose proximity operators are easy to compute. The goal of this work is to understand the local convergence behaviour of … Read more

Local convergence for alternating and averaged nonconvex projections

The idea of a finite collection of closed sets having “strongly regular intersection” at a given point is crucial in variational analysis. We show that this central theoretical tool also has striking algorithmic consequences. Specifically, we consider the case of two sets, one of which we assume to be suitably “regular” (special cases being convex … Read more
