Variational analysis has come of age. Long an elegant theoretical toolkit for variational mathematics and nonsmooth optimization, it now increasingly underpins the study of algorithms, and a rich…

The study of first-order methods has largely dominated research in continuous optimization for the last decade, yet still the range of problems for which optimal first-order methods have been…
