Exact Convergence Rates of Alternating Projections for Nontransversal Intersections

We study the exact convergence rate of the alternating projection method for the nontransversal intersection of a semialgebraic set and a linear subspace. If the linear subspace is a line, the exact rates are expressed by multiplicities of the defining polynomials of the semialgebraic set, or related power series. Our methods are also applied to … Read more
