On the regularizing behavior of recent gradient methods in the solution of linear ill-posed problems

We analyze the regularization properties of two recently proposed gradient methods applied to discrete linear inverse problems. By studying their filter factors, we show that the tendency of these methods to eliminate first the eigencomponents of the gradient corresponding to large singular values allows to reconstruct the most significant part of the solution, thus yielding … Read more

Linear Huber M-Estimator under Ellipsoidal Data Uncertainty

The purpose of this note is to present a robust counterpart of the Huber estimation problem in the sense of Ben-Tal and Nemirovski when the data elements are subject to ellipsoidal uncertainty. The robust counterparts are polynomially solvable second-order cone programs with the strong duality property. We illustrate the effectiveness of the robust counterpart approach … Read more
