Linear Convergence of Proximal Incremental Aggregated Gradient Methods under Quadratic Growth Condition

Under the strongly convex assumption, several recent works studied the global linear convergence rate of the proximal incremental aggregated gradient (PIAG) method for minimizing the sum of a large number of smooth component functions and a non-smooth convex function. In this paper, under the quadratic growth condition{a strictly weaker condition than the strongly convex assumption, … Read more

Second-order analysis of optimal control problems with control and initial-final state constraints

This paper provides an analysis of Pontryagine mimina satisfying a quadratic growth condition, for optimal control problems of ordinary differential equations with constraints on initial-final state, as well as control constraints satisfying the uniform positive linear independence condition.
