Alternating direction method of multipliers method fo solving linear problems with constraints. in a min_x f(x) + g(z) s.t. Ax+Bz=c. This algorithm employs two sub Tao solvers, of which type can be specificed by the user. User need to provide ObjectiveAndGradient routine, and/or HessianRoutine for both subsolvers. Hessians can be given boolean flag determining whether they change with respect to a input vector. This can be set via TaoADMMSet{Misfit,Regularizer}HessianChangeStatus. Second subsolver does support TAOSHELL. It should be noted that L1-norm is used for objective value for TAOSHELL type. There is option to set regularizer option, and currently soft-threshold is implemented. For spectral penalty update, currently there are baisc option and adaptive option. Constraint is set at Ax+Bz=c, and A and B can be set with TaoADMMSet{Misfit,Regularizer}ConstraintJacobian. c can be set with TaoADMMSetConstraintVectorRHS. The user can also provide regularizer weight for second subsolver.
