A Fast Algorithm for Sparse Reconstruction based on Shrinkage, Subspace Optimization and Continuation

We propose a fast algorithm for solving the l1-regularized least squares problem for recovering sparse solutions to an undetermined system of linear equations Ax = b. The algorithm is divided into two stages that are performed repeatedly. In the first stage a first-order iterative method called “shrinkage” yields an estimate of the subset of components … Read more

Coordinate and Subspace Optimization Methods for Linear Least Squares with Non-Quadratic Regularization

This work addresses the problem of regularized linear least squares (RLS) with non-quadratic separable regularization. Despite being frequently deployed in many applications, the RLS problem is often hard to solve using standard iterative methods. In a recent work [10], a new iterative method called Parallel Coordinate Descent (PCD) was devised. We provide herein a convergence … Read more
