An Inexact Successive Quadratic Approximation Method for Convex L-1 Regularized Optimization

We study a Newton-like method for the minimization of an objective function $\phi$ that is the sum of a smooth convex function and an $\ell_1$ regularization term. This method, which is sometimes referred to in the literature as a proximal Newton method, computes a step by minimizing a piecewise quadratic model $q_k$ of the objective … Read more
