Title: Projection methods for constrained minimization of a finite sum of convex functions.
Abstract: Projection methods are introduced to minimize a finite sum of convex functions over the intersection finitely many closed convex subsets of a Hilbert space. These algorithms consist of two steps. The first step is an inner circle of gradient descent process to be executed through each component function and the second step is projection process (e.g., sequential or parallel or cyclic projection) that is applied to produce the next iterate.
