Projective Splitting with Forward Steps: Asynchronous and Block-Iterative Operator Splitting

This work is concerned with the classical problem of finding a zero of a sum of maximal monotone operators. For the projective splitting framework recently proposed by Combettes and Eckstein, we show how to replace the fundamental subproblem calculation using a backward step with one based on two forward steps. The resulting algorithms have the … Read more

A forward-backward-forward differential equation and its asymptotic properties

In this paper, we approach the problem of finding the zeros of the sum of a maximally monotone operator and a monotone and Lipschitz continuous one in a real Hilbert space via an implicit forward-backward-forward dynamical system with nonconstant relaxation parameters and stepsizes of the resolvents. Besides proving existence and uniqueness of strong global solutions … Read more

Second order forward-backward dynamical systems for monotone inclusion problems

We begin by considering second order dynamical systems of the from $\ddot x(t) + \Gamma (\dot x(t)) + \lambda(t)B(x(t))=0$, where $\Gamma: {\cal H}\rightarrow{\cal H}$ is an elliptic bounded self-adjoint linear operator defined on a real Hilbert space ${\cal H}$, $B: {\cal H}\rightarrow{\cal H}$ is a cocoercive operator and $\lambda:[0,+\infty)\rightarrow [0,+\infty)$ is a relaxation function depending … Read more

Alternating proximal algorithms for constrained variational inequalities. Application to domain decomposition for PDE’s

Let $\cX,\cY,\cZ$ be real Hilbert spaces, let $f : \cX \rightarrow \R\cup\{+\infty\}$, $g : \cY \rightarrow \R\cup\{+\infty\}$ be closed convex functions and let $A : \cX \rightarrow \cZ$, $B : \cY \rightarrow \cZ$ be linear continuous operators. Let us consider the constrained minimization problem $$ \min\{f(x)+g(y):\quad Ax=By\}.\leqno (\cP)$$ Given a sequence $(\gamma_n)$ which tends toward … Read more
