A Framework of Constraint Preserving Update Schemes for Optimization on Stiefel Manifold

This paper considers optimization problems on the Stiefel manifold $X^TX=I_p$, where $X\in \mathbb{R}^{n \times p}$ is the variable and $I_p$ is the $p$-by-$p$ identity matrix. A framework of constraint preserving update schemes is proposed by decomposing each feasible point into the range space of $X$ and the null space of $X^T$. While this general framework … Read more
