Regularized Nonsmooth Newton Algorithms for Best Approximation

We consider the problem of finding the best approximation point from a polyhedral set, and its applications, in particular to solving large-scale linear programs. The classical projection problem has many various and many applications. We study a regularized nonsmooth Newton type solution method where the Jacobian is singular; and we compare the computational performance to … Read more

Best approximation to common fixed points of a semigroup of nonexpansive operators

We study a sequential algorithm for finding the projection of a given point onto the common fixed points set of a semigroup of nonexpansive operators in Hilbert space. The convergence of such an algorithm was previously established only for finitely many nonexpansive operators. Algorithms of this kind have been applied to the best approximation and … Read more

Finding the projection of a point onto the intersection of convex sets via projections onto halfspaces

We present a modification of Dykstra’s algorithm which allows us to avoid projections onto general convex sets. Instead, we calculate projections onto either a halfspace or onto the intersection of two halfspaces. Convergence of the algorithm is established and special choices of the halfspaces are proposed. The option to project onto halfspaces instead of general … Read more
