Quantitative recovery conditions for tree-based compressed sensing

As shown in [9, 1], signals whose wavelet coefficients exhibit a rooted tree structure can be recovered — using specially-adapted compressed sensing algorithms — from just $n=\mathcal{O}(k)$ measurements, where $k$ is the sparsity of the signal. Motivated by these results, we introduce a simplified proportional-dimensional asymptotic framework which enables the quantitative evaluation of recovery guarantees … Read more

An exact tree projection algorithm for wavelets

We propose a dynamic programming algorithm for projection onto wavelet tree structures. In contrast to other recently proposed algorithms which only give approximate tree projections for a given sparsity, our algorithm is guaranteed to calculate the projection exactly. We also prove that our algorithm has O(Nk) complexity, where N is the signal dimension and k … Read more

Generalized Forward-Backward Splitting

This paper introduces the generalized forward-backward splitting algorithm for minimizing convex functions of the form $F + \sum_{i=1}^n G_i$, where $F$ has a Lipschitz-continuous gradient and the $G_i$’s are simple in the sense that their Moreau proximity operators are easy to compute. While the forward-backward algorithm cannot deal with more than $n = 1$ non-smooth … Read more

Fast iterative solution of saddle point problems in optimal control based on wavelets

In this paper, wavelet techniques are employed for the fast numerical solution of a control problem governed by an elliptic boundary value problem with boundary control. A quadratic cost functional involving natural norms of the state and the control is to be minimized. Firstly the constraint, the elliptic boundary value problem, is formulated in an … Read more

Multiscale Concepts for Moving Horizon Optimization

In chemical engineering complex dynamic optimization problems formulated on moving horizons have to be solved on-line. In this work, we present a multiscale approach based on wavelets where a hierarchy of successively, adaptively refined problems are constructed.They are solved in the framework of nested iteration as long as the real-time restrictions are fulfilled. To avoid … Read more
