Inexact variable metric forward-backward methods for convex and nonconvex optimizationMS79

In this talk we focus on variable metric forward-backward algorithms, where the metric underlying the backward/proximal step may change at each iteration to better capture the local features of the objective function and constraints. The main theoretical convergence properties will be described in the convex and nonconvex case and practical implementation issues will be discussed.
