The cyclic Douglas–Rachford algorithm with r-sets-Douglas–Rachford operators

By Francisco Javier Aragón Artacho, Yair Censor and Aviv Gibali


The Douglas–Rachford (DR) algorithm is an iterative procedure that uses sequential reflections onto convex sets and which has become popular for convex feasibility problems. In this paper we propose a structural generalization that allows to use r-sets-DR operators in a cyclic fashion. We prove convergence and present numerical illustrations of the potential advantage of such operators with r>2 over the classical 2-sets-DR operators in a cyclic algorithm.The first author was supported by MINECO of Spain and ERDF of EU, as part of the Ramón y Cajal program (RYC-2013-13327) and the Grant MTM2014-59179-C2-1-P.
