Double-Regularization Proximal Methods, with Complementarity Applications

We consider the variational inequality problem formed by a general set-valued maximal monotone operator and a possibly unbounded “box” in $R^n$, and study its solution by proximal methods whose distance regularizations are coercive over the box. We prove convergence for a class of double regularizations generalizing a previously-proposed class of Auslender et al. We apply … Read more

A practical general approximation criterion for methods of multipliers based on Bregman distances

This paper demonstrates that for generalized methods of multipliers for convex programming based on Bregman distance kernels — including the classical quadratic method of multipliers — the minimization of the augmented Lagrangian can be truncated using a simple, generally implementable stopping criterion based only on the norms of the primal iterate and the gradient (or … Read more
