An Average Curvature Accelerated Composite Gradient Method for Nonconvex Smooth Composite Optimization Problems

This paper presents an accelerated composite gradient (ACG) variant, referred to as the AC-ACG method, for solving nonconvex smooth composite minimization problems. As opposed to well-known ACG variants that are either based on a known Lipschitz gradient constant or a sequence of maximum observed curvatures, the current one is based on a sequence of average … Read more
