Randomized Iterative Methods for Linear Systems: Momentum, Inexactness and Gossip

09/26/2019 ∙ by Nicolas Loizou, et al. ∙ 0

In the era of big data, one of the key challenges is the development of novel optimization algorithms that can accommodate vast amounts of data while at the same time satisfying constraints and limitations of the problem under study. The need to solve optimization problems is ubiquitous in essentially all quantitative areas of human endeavor, including industry and science. In the last decade there has been a surge in the demand from practitioners, in fields such as machine learning, computer vision, artificial intelligence, signal processing and data science, for new methods able to cope with these new large scale problems. In this thesis we are focusing on the design, complexity analysis and efficient implementations of such algorithms. In particular, we are interested in the development of randomized iterative methods for solving large scale linear systems, stochastic quadratic optimization problems, the best approximation problem and quadratic optimization problems. A large part of the thesis is also devoted to the development of efficient methods for obtaining average consensus on large scale networks.
