A Variant of the Hybrid Proximal Extragradient Method for Solving Strongly Monotone Inclusions and its Complexity Analysis



This paper presents and studies the iteration-complexity of a variant of the hybrid proximal extragradient method for solving inclusion problems with strongly (maximal) monotone operators. As applications, we propose and analyze two special cases: variants of the Tseng’s forward–backward method for solving monotone inclusions with strongly monotone and Lipschitz continuous operators and of the Korpelevich extragradient method for solving (strongly monotone) variational inequalities.
