Anderson Acceleration of Proximal Gradient Methods

Jul 12, 2020



Anderson acceleration is a well-established and simple technique for speeding up fixed-point computations with countless applications. This work introduces novel methods for adapting Anderson acceleration to (non-smooth and constrained) proximal gradient algorithms. Under some technical conditions, we extend the existing local convergence results of Anderson acceleration for smooth fixed-point mappings to the proposed scheme. We also prove analytically that it is not, in general, possible to guarantee global convergence of native Anderson acceleration. We therefore propose a simple scheme for stabilization that combines the global worst-case guarantees of proximal gradient methods with the local adaptation and practical speed-up of Anderson acceleration. We also provide the first applications of Anderson acceleration to non-Euclidean geometry.
