New Improved Penalty Methods for Sparse Reconstruction Based on Difference of Two Norms

In this paper, we further establish two types of DC (Difference of Convex functions) programming for $l_0$ sparse reconstruction. Our DC objective functions are specified to the difference of two norms. One is the difference of $l_1$ and $l_{\sigma_q}$ norms (DC $l_1$-$l_{\sigma_q}$ for short) where $l_{\sigma_q}$ is the $l_1$ norm of the $q$-term ($q\geq1$) best … Read more

One condition for all: solution uniqueness and robustness of l1-synthesis and l1-analysis minimizations

The l1-synthesis and l1-analysis models recover structured signals from their undersampled measurements. The solution of the former model is often a sparse sum of dictionary atoms, and that of the latter model often makes sparse correlations with dictionary atoms. This paper addresses the question: when can we trust these models to recover specific signals? We … Read more
