Question: Does it make sense to perform compressed sampling if the non zero samples are grouped in time? If so, what is the minimal length of the vector x that should be acquired to allow full signal reconstruction (of at least the non zero pulse segments)?

$y=\phi x$, where y is the compressed vector and x is the signal (sampled at nyquist)

Situation: time sparse signal (+- 97 % of the samples at noise level), but the 3% non zero samples are grouped (periodic). I'm only interested in the pulse samples (so not in the noise floor samples). a pulse train

Thanks a lot!

  • $\begingroup$ There's something called block sparsity in compressed sensing literature which may be relevant to your question. $\endgroup$ – Atul Ingle Oct 26 '17 at 18:10

it does. Actually compressed sensing does not assume any distribution of non-zero elements in the input vector (signal), so it makes no difference if your non-zero elements are near each other or located uniformly on the sampling grid. The number of measurement, as theory states for all sparse signals, depends on how many non-zero elements you have (sparsity degree), what is your noise in input and what recovery quality your need (exact or approximation) and etc. I'd like to suggest the following video lecture of Baranuik: Video Lecture On CS
