An analysis of the superiorization method via the principle of concentration of measure

The superiorization methodology is intended to work with input data of constrained minimization problems, i.e., a target function and a constraints set. However, it is based on an antipodal way of thinking to the thinking that leads constrained minimization methods. Instead of adapting unconstrained minimization algorithms to handling constraints, it adapts feasibility-seeking algorithms to reduce … Read more

Random projections for linear programming

Random projections are random linear maps, sampled from appropriate distributions, that approximately preserve certain geometrical invariants so that the approximation improves as the dimension of the space grows. The well-known Johnson-Lindenstrauss lemma states that there are \LL{random matrices with surprisingly few rows} that approximately preserve pairwise Euclidean distances among a set of points. This is … Read more
