Convergence of Proximal Gradient Algorithm in the Presence of Adjoint Mismatch

We consider the proximal gradient algorithm for solving penalized least-squares minimization problems arising in data science. This first-order algorithm is attractive due to its flexibility and minimal memory requirements allowing to tackle large-scale minimization problems involving non-smooth penalties. However, for problems such as X-ray computed tomography, the applicability of the algorithm is dominated by the … Read more

On the linear convergence of the forward-backward splitting algorithm

In this paper, we establish a linear convergence result for the forward-backward splitting algorithm in the finding a zero of the sum of two maximal monotone operators, where one of them is set-valued strongly monotone and the other is Lipschitz continuous. We show that our convergence rate is better than Douglas–Rachford splitting algorithm’s rate used … Read more

A Proximal Interior Point Algorithm with Applications to Image Processing

In this article, we introduce a new proximal interior point algorithm (PIPA). This algorithm is able to handle convex optimization problems involving various constraints where the objective function is the sum of a Lipschitz differentiable term and a possibly nonsmooth one. Each iteration of PIPA involves the minimization of a merit function evaluated for decaying … Read more

On inexact relative-error hybrid proximal extragradient, forward-backward and Tseng’s modified forward-backward methods with inertial effects

In this paper, we propose and study the asymptotic convergence and nonasymptotic global convergence rates (iteration-complexity) of an inertial under-relaxed version of the relative-error hybrid proximal extragradient (HPE) method for solving monotone inclusion problems. We analyze the proposed method under more flexible assumptions than existing ones on the extrapolation and relative-error parameters. As applications, we … Read more

Stochastic Approximations and Perturbations in Forward-Backward Splitting for Monotone Operators

We investigate the asymptotic behavior of a stochastic version of the forward-backward splitting algorithm for finding a zero of the sum of a maximally monotone set-valued operator and a cocoercive operator in Hilbert spaces. Our general setting features stochastic approximations of the cocoercive operator and stochastic perturbations in the evaluation of the resolvents of the … Read more

Stochastic Quasi-Fejér Block-Coordinate Fixed Point Iterations with Random Sweeping

This work investigates the properties of stochastic quasi-Fejér monotone sequences in Hilbert spaces and emphasizes their pertinence in the study of the convergence of block-coordinate fixed point methods. The iterative methods under investigation feature random sweeping rules to select the blocks of variables that are activated over the course of the iterations and allow for … Read more

Forward-Backward and Tseng’s Type Penalty Schemes for Monotone Inclusion Problems

We deal with monotone inclusion problems of the form $0\in Ax+Dx+N_C(x)$ in real Hilbert spaces, where $A$ is a maximally monotone operator, $D$ a cocoercive operator and $C$ the nonempty set of zeros of another cocoercive operator. We propose a forward-backward penalty algorithm for solving this problem which extends the one proposed by H. Attouch, … Read more

Generalized Forward-Backward Splitting

This paper introduces the generalized forward-backward splitting algorithm for minimizing convex functions of the form $F + \sum_{i=1}^n G_i$, where $F$ has a Lipschitz-continuous gradient and the $G_i$’s are simple in the sense that their Moreau proximity operators are easy to compute. While the forward-backward algorithm cannot deal with more than $n = 1$ non-smooth … Read more
