An inexact ADMM with proximal-indefinite term and larger stepsize

In this paper, an inexact Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) has been proposed for solving the two-block separable convex optimization problem subject to linear equality constraints. The first resulting subproblem is solved inexactly under relative error criterion, while another subproblem called regularization problem is solved inexactly by introducing an indefinite proximal term. Meanwhile, the … Read more

A corrected semi-proximal ADMM for multi-block convex optimization and its application to DNN-SDPs

In this paper we propose a corrected semi-proximal ADMM (alternating direction method of multipliers) for the general $p$-block $(p\!\ge 3)$ convex optimization problems with linear constraints, aiming to resolve the dilemma that almost all the existing modified versions of the directly extended ADMM, although with convergent guarantee, often perform substantially worse than the directly extended … Read more
