ADMM(loss_fn, k, rho=1, max_iter=100, rtol=0.01, atol=0.0001, verbose=False)¶
Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) solver. ADMM is renowned for being well suited to the distributed settings , for its guaranteed convergence and general robustness with respect to the parameters. Additionally, the algorithm has a generic form that can be easily adapted to a wide range of machine learning problems with only minor tweaks in the code.
- loss_fn (func) – Loss function.
- k (float) – Soft thresholding value.
- rho (float, optional (default=1)) – The penalty parameter for constraint violation.
- max_iter (int, optional (default=100)) – Maximum number of iterations to perform.
- atol (float, optional (default=1e-4)) – The absolute tolerance used to calculate the early stop criterion.
- rtol (float, optional (default=1e-2)) – The relative tolerance used to calculate the early stop criterion.
- verbose (boolean, optional (default=False)) – Whether to print information about the optimization process.
- z (ds-array shape=(1, n_features)) – Computed z.
- n_iter (int) – Number of iterations performed.
- converged (boolean) – Whether the optimization converged.
