The Null Space Property of the Weighted $\ell_r-\ell_1$ Minimization

The null space property (NSP), which relies merely on the null space of the sensing matrix column space, has drawn numerous interests in sparse signal recovery. This article studies NSP of the weighted $\ell_r-\ell_1$ minimization. Several versions of NSP of the weighted $\ell_r-\ell_1$ minimization including the weighted $\ell_r-\ell_1$ NSP, the weighted $\ell_r-\ell_1$ stable NSP, the … Read more

1-Bit Compressive Sensing: Reformulation and RRSP-Based Sign Recovery Theory

Recently, the 1-bit compressive sensing (1-bit CS) has been studied in the field of sparse signal recovery. Since the amplitude information of sparse signals in 1-bit CS is not available, it is often the support or the sign of a signal that can be exactly recovered with a decoding method. In this paper, we first … Read more

RSP-Based Analysis for Sparsest and Least $\ell_1hBcNorm Solutions to Underdetermined Linear Systems

Recently, the worse-case analysis, probabilistic analysis and empirical justification have been employed to address the fundamental question: When does $\ell_1$-minimization find the sparsest solution to an underdetermined linear system? In this paper, a deterministic analysis, rooted in the classic linear programming theory, is carried out to further address this question. We first identify a necessary … Read more

A Linearly Convergent Algorithm for Solving a Class of Nonconvex/Affine Feasibility Problems

We introduce a class of nonconvex/affine feasibility problems, called (NCF), that consists of finding a point in the intersection of affine constraints with a nonconvex closed set. This class captures some interesting fundamental and NP hard problems arising in various application areas such as sparse recovery of signals and affine rank minimization that we briefly … Read more

l_1 Trend Filtering

The problem of estimating underlying trends in time series data arises in a variety of disciplines. In this paper we propose a variation on Hodrick-Prescott (H-P) filtering, a widely used method for trend estimation. The proposed l_1 trend filtering method substitutes a sum of absolute values (i.e., l_1-norm) for the sum of squares used in … Read more
