Proximal gradient descent.

Solves problems of the form

minimize_x f(x) + g(x)

where we have access to the gradient of f and to the proximal operator of g.

  • f_grad – callable Returns the function value and gradient of the objective function.
  • g – penalty term (proximal)
  • x0 – array-like, optional Initial guess
  • line_search – boolean Whether to perform backtracking (i.e. line-search) or not.
  • max_iter – int Maximum number of iterations.
  • verbose – int Verbosity level, from 0 (no output) to 2 (output on each iteration)
  • step_size – float Starting value for the line-search procedure. XXX
  • callback – callable callback function (optional).

The optimization result represented as a

scipy.optimize.OptimizeResult object. Important attributes are: x the solution array, success a Boolean flag indicating if the optimizer exited successfully and message which describes the cause of the termination. See scipy.optimize.OptimizeResult for a description of other attributes.
