AdaBB: Adaptive Barzilai-Borwein Method for Convex Optimization

In this paper, we propose AdaBB, an adaptive gradient method based on the Barzilai-Borwein stepsize. The algorithm is line-search-free and parameter-free, and essentially provides a convergent variant of the Barzilai-Borwein method for general unconstrained convex optimization. We analyze the ergodic convergence of the objective function value and the convergence of the iterates for solving general … Read more
