Acceleration of the Cutting-Plane Algorithm: Primal Forms of Bundle Methods

  • Jean-Baptiste Hiriart-Urruty

Part of the Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften book series (GL, volume 306)


Chapter VI (subdifferentials and their elementary properties) is essential and Chap. VII or XII (minimality conditions and elementary duality for simple convex minimization problems) will suffice for a superficial reading. However, practically all the book is useful for a complete understanding of every detail; in particular: Chap. 11 (basic principies for minimization algorithms), Chap. IV (properties ofperspective-functions), Chap. IX (bundling mechanism for descent algorithms), Chap. X (conjugacy, smoothness of the conjugate), Chap. XI (approximate subdifferentials, infimal convolution), Chap. XII (classical algorithms for convex minimization, duality schemes in the convex case), Chap. XIV (general principles of dual bundle methods).
