Abstract:
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.
