A robust method based on LOVO functions for solving least squares problems

The robust adjustment of nonlinear models to data is considered in this paper. When data comes from real experiments, it is possible that measurement errors cause the appearance of discrepant values, which should be ignored when adjusting models to them. This work presents a Lower Order-value Optimization (LOVO) version of the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm, which is … Read more

Cyclic Coordinate Update Algorithms for Fixed-Point Problems: Analysis and Applications

Many problems reduce to the fixed-point problem of solving $x=T(x)$. To this problem, we apply the coordinate-update algorithms, which update only one or a few components of $x$ at each step. When each update is cheap, these algorithms are faster than the full fixed-point iteration (which updates all the components). In this paper, we focus … Read more
