A family of accelerated inexact augmented Lagrangian methods with applications to image restoration

In this paper, we focus on a class of convex optimization problems subject to equality or inequality constraints and have developed an Accelerated Inexact Augmented Lagrangian Method (AI-ALM). Different relative error criteria are designed to solve the subproblem of AI-ALM inexactly, and the popular used relaxation step is exploited to accelerate the convergence. By a … Read more

ADMM and inexact ALM: the QP case

Embedding randomization procedures in the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) has recently attracted an increasing amount of interest as a remedy to the fact that the direct n-block generalization of ADMM is not necessarily convergent ($n \geq 3$). Even if, in practice, the introduction of such techniques could mitigate the diverging behaviour of the … Read more
