Davis-Yin three operator splitting method.

This algorithm can solve problems of the form

minimize_x f(x) + g(x) + h(x)

where f is a smooth function and g is a (possibly non-smooth) function for which the proximal operator is known.

  • fun (callable) – f(x) returns the value of f at x.
  • fun_deriv (callable or None) – f_prime(x) returns the gradient of f.
  • g_prox (callable or None) – g_prox(x, alpha, *args) returns the proximal operator of g at xa with parameter alpha. Extra arguments can be passed by g_prox_args.
  • y0 (array-like) – Initial guess
  • line_search (boolean) – Whether to perform backtracking (i.e. line-search) to estimate the step size.
  • 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.
  • callback (callable) – callback function (optional).

res – 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.
