Non-smooth non-convex Bregman minimization: unification and new algorithmsMS10

We propose a unifying algorithm for non-smooth non-convex optimization. The algorithm approximates the objective function by a convex model function and finds an approximate Bregman proximal point of the convex model. We prove convergence to a stationary point under weak assumptions on the growth of the model function error. Special instances of the algorithm with Euclidean distance are, e.g., Gradient Descent, Forward--Backward Splitting, ProxDescent. Applications include non-linear inverse problems in image processing and machine learning.
