Contemporary challenges arising from the treatment of information based on huge amount of data have generated renewed interest for first-order methods. Enriched with acceleration schemes, these methods may combine low cost and efficiency for solving smooth optimization problems, unsuited to second-order approaches. Motivated by such challenges, this project addresses the study of accelerated gradient strategies, aiming to analyze possible relationships between the discrete iterative schemes and their continuous counterparts, which involve related ordinary differential equations.
