template<typename BaseOptimizerType>
class GncOptimizer : public BaseOptimizerType
#include <gnc_optimizer.h>

Subclass of Optimizer for using Graduated Non-Convexity (GNC)

Assumes the convexity of the cost function is controlled by a hyperparameter mu. When mu == 0 the cost function should be convex and as mu goes to 1 the cost function should smoothly transition to a robust cost.

Public Types

using BaseOptimizer = BaseOptimizerType
using Scalar = typename BaseOptimizer::Scalar
