TADS Seminar: A Homotopic Method to Solve the Lasso Problems with an Improved Upper Bound of Convergence Rate

Thursday, October 29, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Abstract: In optimization, it is known that when the objective functions are strictly convex and well-conditioned, gradient based approaches can be extremely effective, e.g., achieving the exponential rate in convergence. On the other hand, the existing Lasso-type of estimator in general cannot achieve the optimal rate due to the undesirable behavior of the absolute function at the origin. A homotopic method is to use a sequence of surrogate functions to approximate the $\ell_1$ penalty that is used in the Lasso-type of estimators.
