An inertial extrapolation method for convex simple bilevel optimization

We consider a scalar objective minimization problem over the solution set of another optimization problem. This problem is known as simple bilevel optimization problem and has drawn a significant attention in the last few years. Our inner problem consists of minimizing the sum of smooth and nonsmooth functions while the outer one is the minimization … 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
