Alternating projections CAT(0) spaces

Miroslav Bačák, Ian Searston and Brailey Sims


By using recently developed theory which extends the idea of weak convergence into CAT(0) space we prove the convergence of the alternating projection method for convex closed subsets of a CAT(0) space. Given the right notion of weak convergence it turns out that the generalization of the well-known results in Hilbert spaces is straightforward and allows the use of the method in a nonlinear setting. As an application, we use the alternating projection method to minimize convex functionals on a CAT(0) space.
