Weighted Thresholding Homotopy Method for Sparsity Constrained Optimization

Weighted or reweighted strategies have not been considered for sparsity constrained optimization. In this paper, we reformulate the sparsity constraint as an equivalent weighted l1-norm constraint in the sparsity constrained optimization problem. To solve the reformulated problem, we investigate the problem in the Lagrange dual framework, and prove that the strong duality property holds. Then … Read more

Iterative weighted thresholding method for sparse solution of underdetermined linear equations

Recently, iterative reweighted methods have attracted much interest in compressed sensing, since they perform better than unweighted ones in most cases. Currently, weights are chosen heuristically in existing iterative reweighted methods, and nding an optimal weight is an open problem since we do not know the exact support set beforehand. In this paper, we present … Read more
