A Proximal Cutting Plane Method Using Chebychev Center for Nonsmooth Convex Optimization

An algorithm is developed for minimizing nonsmooth convex functions. This algorithm extends Elzinga-Moore cutting plane algorithm by enforcing the search of the next test point not too far from the previous ones, thus removing compactness assumption. Our method is to Elzinga-Moore’s algorithm what a proximal bundle method is to Kelley’s algorithm. Instead of lower approximations … Read more
