ao: Alternating Optimization

Alternating optimization is an iterative procedure that optimizes a function by alternately performing restricted optimization over individual parameter subsets. Instead of tackling joint optimization directly, it breaks the problem down into simpler sub-problems. This approach can make optimization feasible when joint optimization is too difficult.
