A variable metric mini-batch proximal stochastic recursive gradient algorithm with diagonal Barzilai-Borwein stepsize

Variable metric proximal gradient methods with different metric selections have been widely used in composite optimization. Combining the Barzilai-Borwein (BB) method with a diagonal selection strategy for the metric, the diagonal BB stepsize can keep low per-step computation cost as the scalar BB stepsize and better capture the local geometry of the problem. In this paper, we propose a variable metric mini-batch proximal stochastic recursive gradient algorithm VM-mSRGBB, which updates the metric using a new diagonal BB stepsize. The linear convergence of VM-mSRGBB is established for strongly convex, non-strongly convex and convex functions. Numerical experiments on standard data sets show that VM-mSRGBB is better than or comparable to some variance reduced stochastic gradient methods with best-tuned scalar stepsizes or BB stepsizes. Furthermore, the performance of VM-mSRGBB is superior to some advanced mini-batch proximal stochastic gradient methods.
