In applications throughout science and engineering one is often faced with the challenge of solving an illposed inverse problem, where the number of available measurements is smaller than the dimension of the model to be estimated. However in many practical situations of interest, models are constrained structurally so that they only have a few degrees of freedom relative to their ambient dimension. This paper provides a general framework to convert notions of simplicity into convex penalty functions, resulting in convex optimization solutions to linear, underdetermined inverse problems. The class of simple models considered are those formed as the sum of a few atoms from some (possibly infinite) elementary atomic set; examples include wellstudied cases such as sparse vectors (e.g., signal processing, statistics) and lowrank matrices (e.g., control, statistics), as well as several others including sums of a few permutations matrices (e.g., ranked elections, multiobject tracking), lowrank tensors (e.g., computer vision, neuroscience), orthogonal matrices (e.g., machine learning), and atomic measures (e.g., system identification). The convex programming formulation is based on minimizing the norm induced by the convex hull of the atomic set; this norm is referred to as the atomic norm. The facial

Wideband analog signals push contemporary analogtodigital conversion systems to their performance limits. In many applications, however, sampling at the Nyquist rate is inefficient because the signals of interest contain only a small number of significant frequencies relative to the bandlimit, although the locations of the frequencies may not be known a priori. For this type of sparse signal, other sampling strategies are possible. This paper describes a new type of data acquisition system, called a random demodulator, that is constructed from robust, readily available components. Let K denote the total number of frequencies in the signal, and let W denote its bandlimit in Hz. Simulations suggest that the random demodulator requires just O(K log(W/K)) samples per second to stably reconstruct the signal. This sampling rate is exponentially lower than the Nyquist rate of W Hz. In contrast with Nyquist sampling, one must use nonlinear methods, such as convex programming, to recover the signal from the samples taken by the random demodulator. This paper provides a detailed theoretical analysis of the system’s performance that supports the empirical observations.

These notes give a mathematical introduction to compressive sensing focusing on recovery using ℓ1minimization and structured random matrices. An emphasis is put on techniques for proving probabilistic estimates for condition numbers of structured random matrices. Estimates of this type are key to providing conditions that ensure exact or approximate recovery of sparse vectors using ℓ1minimization.

Abstract. This paper outlines a new framework for compressive sensing: convolution with a random waveform followed by random time domain subsampling. We show that sensing by random convolution is a universally efficient data acquisition strategy in that an ndimensional signal which is S sparse in any fixed representation can be recovered from m � S log n measurements. We discuss two imaging scenarios — radar and Fourier optics — where convolution with a random pulse allows us to seemingly superresolve finescale features, allowing us to recover highresolution signals from lowresolution measurements. 1. Introduction. The new field of compressive sensing (CS) has given us a fresh look at data acquisition, one of the fundamental tasks in signal processing. The message of this theory can be summarized succinctly [7, 8, 10, 15, 32]: the number of measurements we need to reconstruct a signal depends on its sparsity rather than its bandwidth. These measurements, however, are different than the samples that

Compressed sensing (CS) is an emerging field that has attracted considerable research interest over the past few years. Previous review articles in CS limit their scope to standard discretetodiscrete measurement architectures using matrices of randomized nature and signal models based on standard sparsity. In recent years, CS has worked its way into several new application areas. This, in turn, necessitates a fresh look on many of the basics of CS. The random matrix measurement operator must be replaced by more structured sensing architectures that correspond to the characteristics of feasible acquisition hardware. The standard sparsity prior has to be extended to include a much richer class of signals and to encode broader data models, including continuoustime signals. In our overview, the theme is exploiting signal and measurement structure in compressive sensing. The prime focus is bridging theory and practice; that is, to pinpoint the potential of structured CS strategies to emerge from the math to the hardware. Our summary highlights new directions as well as relations to more traditional CS, with the hope of serving both as a review to practitioners wanting to join this emerging field, and as a reference for researchers that attempts to put some of the existing ideas in perspective of practical applications.

This paper introduces a simple and very general theory of compressive sensing. In this theory, the sensing mechanism simply selects sensing vectors independently at random from a probability distribution F; it includes all models — e.g. Gaussian, frequency measurements — discussed in the literature, but also provides a framework for new measurement strategies as well. We prove that if the probability distribution F obeys a simple incoherence property and an isotropy property, one can faithfully recover approximately sparse signals from a minimal number of noisy measurements. The novelty is that our recovery results do not require the restricted isometry property (RIP) — they make use of a much weaker notion — or a random model for the signal. As an example, the paper shows that a signal with s nonzero entries can be faithfully recovered from about s log n Fourier coefficients that are contaminated with noise.

Highrate data communication over a multipath wireless channel often requires that the channel response be known at the receiver. Trainingbased methods, which probe the channel in time, frequency, and space with known signals and reconstruct the channel response from the output signals, are most commonly used to accomplish this task. Traditional trainingbased channel estimation methods, typically comprising of linear reconstruction techniques, are known to be optimal for rich multipath channels. However, physical arguments and growing experimental evidence suggest that many wireless channels encountered in practice tend to exhibit a sparse multipath structure that gets pronounced as the signal space dimension gets large (e.g., due to large bandwidth or large number of antennas). In this paper, we formalize the notion of multipath sparsity and present a new approach to estimating sparse (or effectively sparse) multipath channels that is based on some of the recent advances in the theory of compressed sensing. In particular, it is shown in the paper that the proposed approach, which is termed as compressed channel sensing, can potentially achieve a target reconstruction error using far less energy and, in many instances, latency and bandwidth than that dictated by the traditional leastsquaresbased training methods.

Abstract—The theory of compressed sensing suggests that successful inversion of an image of the physical world (e.g., a radar/sonar return or a sensor array snapshot vector) for the source modes and amplitudes can be achieved at measurement dimensions far lower than what might be expected from the classical theories of spectrum or modal analysis, provided that the image is sparse in an apriori known basis. For imaging problems in passive and active radar and sonar, this basis is usually taken to be a DFT basis. The compressed sensing measurements are then inverted using an ℓ1minimization principle (basis pursuit) for the nonzero source amplitudes. This seems to make compressed sensing an ideal image inversion principle for high resolution modal analysis. However, in reality no physical field is sparse in the DFT basis or in an apriori known basis. In fact the main goal in image inversion is to identify the modal structure. No matter how finely we grid the parameter space the sources may not lie in the center of the grid cells and there is always mismatch between the assumed and the actual bases for sparsity. In this paper, we study the sensitivity of basis pursuit to mismatch between the assumed and the actual sparsity bases and compare the performance of basis pursuit with that of classical image inversion. Our mathematical analysis and numerical examples show that the performance of basis pursuit degrades considerably in the presence of mismatch, and they suggest that the use of compressed sensing as a modal analysis principle requires more consideration and refinement, at least for the problem sizes common to radar/sonar.

Methods based onℓ1relaxation, such as basis pursuit and the Lasso, are very popular for sparse regression in high dimensions. The conditions for success of these methods are now wellunderstood: (1) exact recovery in the noiseless setting is possible if and only if the design matrix X satisfies the restricted nullspace property, and (2) the squaredℓ2error of a Lasso estimate decays at the minimax k log p n optimal rate, where k is the sparsity of the pdimensional regression problem with additive Gaussian noise, whenever the design satisfies a restricted eigenvalue condition. The key issue is thus to determine when the design matrix X satisfies these desirable properties. Thus far, there have been numerous results showing that the restricted isometry property, which implies both the restricted nullspace and eigenvalue conditions, is satisfied when all entries of X are independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.), or the rows are unitary. This paper proves directly that the restricted nullspace and eigenvalue conditions hold with high probability for quite general classes of Gaussian matrices for which the predictors may be highly dependent, and hence restricted isometry conditions can be violated with high probability. In this way, our results extend the attractive theoretical guarantees onℓ1relaxations to a much broader class of problems than the case of completely independent or unitary designs.

In the theory of compressed sensing, restricted isometry analysis has become a standard tool for studying how efficiently a measurement matrix acquires information about sparse and compressible signals. Many recovery algorithms are known to succeed when the restricted isometry constants of the sampling matrix are small. Many potential applications of compressed sensing involve a dataacquisition process that proceeds by convolution with a random pulse followed by (nonrandom) subsampling. At present, the theoretical analysis of this measurement technique is lacking. This paper demonstrates that the sth order restricted isometry constant is small when the number m of samples satisfies m � (s log n) 3/2, where n is the length of the pulse. This bound improves on previous estimates, which exhibit quadratic scaling.
