This paper is a survey of the theory and methods of photogrammetric bundle adjustment, aimed at potential implementors in the computer vision community. Bundle adjustment is the problem of refining a visual reconstruction to produce jointly optimal structure and viewing parameter estimates. Topics covered include: the choice of cost function and robustness; numerical optimization including sparse Newton methods, linearly convergent approximations, updating and recursive methods; gauge (datum) invariance; and quality control. The theory is developed for general robust cost functions rather than restricting attention to traditional nonlinear least squares.

We consider the class of Iterative ShrinkageThresholding Algorithms (ISTA) for solving linear inverse problems arising in signal/image processing. This class of methods is attractive due to its simplicity, however, they are also known to converge quite slowly. In this paper we present a Fast Iterative ShrinkageThresholding Algorithm (FISTA) which preserves the computational simplicity of ISTA, but with a global rate of convergence which is proven to be significantly better, both theoretically and practically. Initial promising numerical results for waveletbased image deblurring demonstrate the capabilities of FISTA.

This technical report demonstrates theoretically and empirically that a greedy algorithm called Orthogonal Matching Pursuit (OMP) can reliably recover a signal with m nonzero entries in dimension d given O(m ln d) random linear measurements of that signal. This is a massive improvement over previous results for OMP, which require O(m 2) measurements. The new results for OMP are comparable with recent results for another algorithm called Basis Pursuit (BP). The OMP algorithm is faster and easier to implement, which makes it an attractive alternative to BP for signal recovery problems.

Large linear systems of saddle point type arise in a wide variety of applications throughout computational science and engineering. Due to their indefiniteness and often poor spectral properties, such linear systems represent a significant challenge for solver developers. In recent years there has been a surge of interest in saddle point problems, and numerous solution techniques have been proposed for solving this type of systems. The aim of this paper is to present and discuss a large selection of solution methods for linear systems in saddle point form, with an emphasis on iterative methods for large and sparse problems.

The basis pursuit problem seeks a minimum onenorm solution of an underdetermined leastsquares problem. Basis pursuit denoise (BPDN) fits the leastsquares problem only approximately, and a single parameter determines a curve that traces the optimal tradeoff between the leastsquares fit and the onenorm of the solution. We prove that this curve is convex and continuously differentiable over all points of interest, and show that it gives an explicit relationship to two other optimization problems closely related to BPDN. We describe a rootfinding algorithm for finding arbitrary points on this curve; the algorithm is suitable for problems that are large scale and for those that are in the complex domain. At each iteration, a spectral gradientprojection method approximately minimizes a leastsquares problem with an explicit onenorm constraint. Only matrixvector operations are required. The primaldual solution of this problem gives function and derivative information needed for the rootfinding method. Numerical experiments on a comprehensive set of test problems demonstrate that the method scales well to large problems.

Abstract. The evolution of digital libraries and the Internet has dramatically transformed the processing, storage, and retrieval of information. Efforts to digitize text, images, video, and audio now consume a substantial portion of both academic and industrial activity. Even when there is no shortage of textual materials on a particular topic, procedures for indexing or extracting the knowledge or conceptual information contained in them can be lacking. Recently developed information retrieval technologies are based on the concept of a vector space. Data are modeled as a matrix, and a user’s query of the database is represented as a vector. Relevant documents in the database are then identified via simple vector operations. Orthogonal factorizations of the matrix provide mechanisms for handling uncertainty in the database itself. The purpose of this paper is to show how such fundamental mathematical concepts from linear algebra can be used to manage and index large text collections. Key words. information retrieval, linear algebra, QR factorization, singular value decomposition, vector spaces

Abstract. It is shown that the basic regularization procedures for finding meaningful approximate solutions of illconditioned or singular linear systems can be phrased and analyzed in terms of classical linear algebra that can be taught in any numerical analysis course. Apart from rewriting many known results in a more elegant form, we also derive a new twoparameter family of merit functions for the determination of the regularization parameter. The traditional merit functions from generalized cross validation (GCV) and generalized maximum likelihood (GML) are recovered as special cases.

This paper develops a fast method for solving linear SVMs with L2 loss function that is suited for large scale data mining tasks such as text classification. This is done by modifying the finite Newton method of Mangasarian in several ways. Experiments indicate that the method is much faster than decomposition methods such as SVM light, SMO and BSVM (e.g., 4100 fold), especially when the number of examples is large. The paper also suggests ways of extending the method to other loss functions such as the modified Huber’s loss function and the L1 loss function, and also for solving ordinal regression.
