Primal-dual methods: theory and practice

Development of a complete primal-dual method involves both theory and practice, typically closely intertwined. Relevant topics include the applicable problem domain, convergence properties, formulation and solution of subproblems, and large numbers of algorithmic and computational details. Primal-dual methods of many flavors have been proposed and implemented in recent years. It seems appropriate at this stage to assess and examine their commonality as well as their differences in several of these dimensions.
