  • (10/3/2016) Paper Uploaded: A Primer on Coordinate Descent Algorithms.

    • This paper is written towards practitioners outside of optimization who may find CD algorithms useful for their applications. We currently intend on adding to the monograph to keep the primer up-to-date on current research until we foresee no more major advances in the area. Any feedback that would make the paper better and more useful for practitioners would be acknowledged and appreciated!
