Past Numerical Analysis Group Internal Seminar

7 March 2017

In various research fields such as machine learning, compressed sensing and operations research, optimization problems which seek sparsity of solutions by the cardinality constraint or rank constraint are studied. We formulate such problems as DC (Difference of two Convex functions) optimization problems and apply DC Algorithm (DCA) to them. While a subproblem needs to be solved in each DCA iteration, its closed-form solution can be easily obtained by soft-thresholding operation. Numerical experiments demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed DCA in comparison with existing methods.
This is a joint work with J. Gotoh (Chuo Univ.) and K. Tono (U. Tokyo).
