function [x, cost, info, options] = barzilaiborwein(problem, x, options)
% Riemannian Barzilai-Borwein solver with non-monotone line-search.
% function [x, cost, info, options] = barzilaiborwein(problem)
% function [x, cost, info, options] = barzilaiborwein(problem, x0)
% function [x, cost, info, options] = barzilaiborwein(problem, x0, options)
% function [x, cost, info, options] = barzilaiborwein(problem, [], options)
% Apply the Barzilai-Borwein minimization algorithm to the problem defined
% in the problem structure, starting at x0 if it is provided (otherwise, at
% a random point on the manifold). To specify options whilst not specifying
% an initial guess, give x0 as [] (the empty matrix).
% The algorithm uses its own special non-monotone line-search strategy.
% Therefore, no line-search algorithm should be specified in the problem
% structure or in the options structure.
% In most of the examples bundled with the toolbox (see link below), the
% solver can be replaced by the present one if need be.
% The outputs x and cost are the last reached point on the manifold and its
% cost. This is not necessarily the best point generated since the method
% is not monotone. The struct-array info contains information about the
% iterations:
% iter : the iteration number (0 for the initial guess)
% cost : cost value
% time : elapsed time in seconds
% gradnorm : Riemannian norm of the gradient
% stepsize : norm of the last tangent vector retracted
% linesearch : information logged by the line-search algorithm
% And possibly additional information logged by options.statsfun.
% For example, type [info.gradnorm] to obtain a vector of the successive
% gradient norms reached.
% The options structure is used to overwrite the default values. All
% options have a default value and are hence optional. To force an option
% value, pass an options structure with a field options.optionname, where
% optionname is one of the following and the default value is indicated
% between parentheses:
% tolgradnorm (1e-6)
% The algorithm terminates if the norm of the gradient drops below this.
% maxiter (1000)
% The algorithm terminates if maxiter iterations have been executed.
% maxtime (Inf)
% The algorithm terminates if maxtime seconds elapsed.
% minstepsize (1e-10)
% The algorithm terminates if the linesearch returns a displacement
% vector (to be retracted) smaller in norm than this value.
% linesearch (@linesearch_hint)
% This option should not be changed, as the present solver has its
% own dedicated line-search strategy.
% strategy ('direct')
% The strategy used for the Barzilai-Borwein stepsize
% 'direct', compute the direct step <s_k,s_k>/<s_k,y_k>
% 'inverse', compute the inverse step <s_k,y_k>/<y_k,y_k>
% 'alternate', alternates between direct and inverse step
% lambdamax (1e3)
% The maximum stepsize allowed by the Barzilai-Borwein method
% lambdamin (1e-3)
% The minimum stepsize allowed by the Barzilai-Borwein method
% lambda0 (1/10)
% The initial stepsize of the Barzilai-Borwein method
% ls_nmsteps (10)
% The non-monotone line-search checks a sufficient decrease with respect
% to the previous ls_nmsteps objective function values.
% statsfun (none)
% Function handle to a function that will be called after each
% iteration to provide the opportunity to log additional statistics.
% They will be returned in the info struct. See the generic Manopt
% documentation about solvers for further information.
% stopfun (none)
% Function handle to a function that will be called at each iteration
% to provide the opportunity to specify additional stopping criteria.
% See the generic Manopt documentation about solvers for further
% information.
% verbosity (3)
% Integer number used to tune the amount of output the algorithm
% generates during execution (mostly as text in the command window).
% The higher, the more output. 0 means silent.
% storedepth (2)
% Maximum number of different points x of the manifold for which a
% store structure will be kept in memory in the storedb. If the
% caching features of Manopt are not used, this is irrelevant. For
% this algorithm, a store depth of 2 should always be sufficient.
% The implementation of the Barzilai-Borwein method is based on the paper:
% B. Iannazzo, M. Porcelli, "The Riemannian Barzilai-Borwein method with
% nonmonotone line-search and the matrix geometric mean computation",
% IMA Journal of Numerical Analysis, to appear,
% See also: steepestdescent conjugategradient trustregions

% Change log:
% Aug. 2, 2018 (NB):
% Now using storedb.remove() to keep the cache lean.
% Verify that the problem description is sufficient for the solver.
