New Bregman proximal type algorithms for solving DC optimization problems

Difference of Convex (DC) optimization problems have objective functions that are differences between two convex functions. Representative ways of solving these problems are the proximal DC algorithms, which require that the convex part of the objective function have L-smoothness. In this article, we propose the Bregman Proximal DC Algorithm (BPDCA) for solving large-scale DC optimization … 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

Proximal Methods with Bregman Distances to Solve VIP on Hadamard manifolds

We present an extension of the proximal point method with Bregman distances to solve Variational Inequality Problems (VIP) on Hadamard manifolds (simply connected finite dimensional Riemannian manifold with nonpositive sectional curvature). Under some natural assumption, as for example, the existence of solutions of the (VIP) and the monotonicity of the multivalued vector field, we prove … Read more

Fixed point and Bregman iterative methods for matrix rank minimization

The linearly constrained matrix rank minimization problem is widely applicable in many fields such as control, signal processing and system identification. The linearly constrained nuclear norm minimization is a convex relaxation of this problem. Although it can be cast as a semidefinite programming problem, the nuclear norm minimization problem is expensive to solve when the … Read more

A Proximal Point Algorithm with Bregman Distances for Quasiconvex Optimization over the Positive Orthant

We present an interior proximal point method with Bregman distance, whose Bregman function is separable and the zone is the interior of the positive orthant, for solving the quasiconvex optimization problem under nonnegative constraints. We establish the well-definedness of the sequence generated by our algorithm and we prove convergence to a solution point when the … Read more

On the Convergence of the Entropy-Exponential Penalty Trajectories and Generalized Proximal Point Methods in Semidefinite Optimization

The convergence of primal and dual central paths associated to entropy and exponential functions, respectively, for semidefinite programming problem are studied in this paper. As an application, the proximal point method with the Kullback-Leibler distance applied to semidefinite programming problems is considered, and the convergence of primal and dual sequences is proved.

Dual Convergence of the Proximal Point Method with Bregman Distances for Linear Programming

In this paper we consider the proximal point method with Bregman distance applied to linear programming problems, and study the dual sequence obtained from the optimal multipliers of the linear constraints of each subproblem. We establish the convergence of this dual sequence, as well as convergence rate results for the primal sequence, for a suitable … Read more
