On Wednesday, 2021-04-21, Prof. Min LI [李敏] of Nanjing University [南京大学] gave her invited talk "Convergence Analysis of the Generalized Splitting Methods for a Class of Nonconvex Optimization Problems" at our institute to a highly interested audience. We all very much looked forward to learn more about the interesting topic and an the talk was very well received and led to a nice discussion. Later on the same day, there were similarly interesting talks by Prof. Weili XUE [薛巍立] and Assoc. Prof. Vincent Chau of Southeast University on two other highly important operations research topics.

摘要: In this talk, we propose generalized splitting methods for solving a class of nonconvex optimization problems. The new methods are extended from the classic Douglas-Rachford and Peaceman-Rachford splitting methods.The range of the new step-sizes even can be enlarged two times for some special cases. The new methods can also be used to solve convex optimization problems. In particular, for convex problems, we propose more relax conditions on step-sizes and other parameters, and prove the global convergence and iteration-complexity without any additional assumptions. Under the strong convexity assumption on the objective function, the linear convergence rate can be derived easily.
