We introduce Bella, a locally superlinearly convergent Bregman forward-backward splitting method for minimizing the sum of two nonconvex functions, one of which satisfies a relative smoothness condition and the other one is possibly nonsmooth. A key tool of our methodology is the Bregman forward-backward envelope (BFBE), an exact and continuous penalty function with favorable first- and second-order properties, which enjoys a nonlinear error bound when the objective function satisfies a Lojasiewicz-type property. The proposed algorithm is of linesearch type over the BFBE along user-defined update directions and converges subsequentially to stationary points and globally under the Kurdyka-Lojasiewicz condition. Moreover, when the update directions are superlinear in the sense of Facchinei and Pang [Finite-Dimensional Variational Inequalities and Complementarity Problems, Volume I, Springer, New York, 2003], owing to the given nonlinear error bound unit stepsize is eventually always accepted and the algorithm attains superlinear convergence rates even when the limit point is a nonisolated minimum.
