Self Equivalence of the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers

The alternating direction method of multipliers (ADM or ADMM) breaks a complex optimization problem into much simpler subproblems. The ADM algorithms are typically short and easy to implement yet exhibit (nearly) state-of-the-art performance for large-scale optimization problems. To apply ADM, we first formulate a given problem into the “ADM-ready” form, so the final algorithm depends … Read more
