### Universal bases (dictionary) for image compression

This is a great and interesting question. There are 2 ways to look at it, empirically and analytically. But before we start, a major detail is that when dealing with images we mainly talk about the ...

### Restricted Isometry Property (RIP) in Compressive Sensing

The restricted isometry property states that: $$\begin{equation} (1-\delta_S)||x||_2^2 \le ||A x||_2^2 \le (1+\delta_S)||x||_2^2 \end{equation}$$ for any $S$-sparse vector $x$. The restricted ...

### Estimating Convolution Input Under the Assumption of Sparsity and Constant Non Zero Values Using Compressive Sensing Approach

Basically your problem is called Blind Deconvolution. It means we want to estimate both the operator and the input given the output. You model is Linear Time Invariant Operator so we have LTI Blind ...

### ${L}_{0}$ Pseudo Norm Minimization in Compressive Sensing

the solution for a sparse recovery problem is given by: $$\text{min} ||x||_0$$ $$\text{s.t} \hspace{2mm} y = Ax$$ The definition of $||x||_0$ is no. of non-zero entries in $x$. ...

### Resources on Solving Convex Optimization Problems in the Compressed Sensing Field

There are few options: Stephen Boyd, Lieven Vandenberghe - Convex Optimization. This is the classic in this field. Very well written book. Also have a look on other papers of Boyd on similar subjects ...

### Best Metric to Compare Sparsity of Vectors

I am sorry I cannot comment your answer due to my low reputation. Gini and your suggested sparsity ratio ($l_1(x)/l_2(x)$) both give me the same value for $\lambda$. But The problem I still see is ...

### Reference Code for Positive Basis Pursuit Denoising

I assume you're after the following optimization problem: \begin{align*} \arg \min_{x} \; & {\left\| x \right\|}_{1} \\ \text{subject to} \; & A x = b \\ & x \succeq 0 \end{align*} ...

### Relationship between information retrieval and source separation in signal processing

There are, a few discrepancies that might be making a difference here. My suggestion would be to edit the question for clarity. There are quite a few assumptions that lead to non-straightforward ...

### Compressive Sensing vs. Sparse Coding

As you correctly noted compressed sensing, compressive sampling, sparse sampling all mean the same thing. Some authors also call it sparse sensing. The idea behind compressed sensing is that a sparse ...

### Compressive Sensing vs. Sparse Coding

A couple of reference works offer an exaplanation: A neurological interpretation described in Scholarpedia Stanford's Unsupervised Feature Learning and Deep Learning tutorial If we look at the ...

### Why Doesn't Compressive Sensing Work for Any Signal?

You can measure and reconstruct such a 1-sparse signal as you describe in your question. The crucial misunderstanding here is, as @MBaz points out, that you have to know the basis $\Psi$. You can ...

### Orthonormal Dictionaries for Band Limited Signals

Why would you add the constraint of being Orthonormal Dictionary? It doesn't make sense in the context of what you ask. First we need to define resolution. If you mean the grid to be denser than ...

### Why Does FISTA Algorithm Not Work for Signed Signals?

I will try explaining why would someone use such an option as defining the solution as positive. The Proximal Gradient Method which is the hurt of the FISTA algorithm is basically a generalization of ...

### Can compressed sensing be used instead of intepolation for missing values?

Yes, at least in the above case it is possible. Though it might not be computationally as cheap as other methods such as least squares based curve fitting. I do not think injecting NaN gonna help, ...

### Reconstruction of a Signal from Sub Sampled Spectrum by Compressed Sensing

We're after the problem: \begin{aligned} \arg \min_{\boldsymbol{x}} \quad & {\left\| \boldsymbol{x} \right\|}_{1} \\ \text{subject to} \quad & \hat{F} \boldsymbol{x} = \boldsymbol{y} \end{...

### Universal bases (dictionary) for image compression

As a complement to the neat answer by @Royi, I would add that "sparsity" is originally a heuristic principle in science, that applies well to many interesting really world data and problems. ...

### Signal Reconstruction in Compressed Sensing with a Simple Vector Signal as an Example

Better is hard to measure unless there is a well defined measure. Yet in the classic Compressed Sensing model (Sparse Representation) the Holly Grail is actually the ${L}_{0}$ Pseudo Norm. The ...

### Real world application of signal sparsity?

Sparsity concept is extensively being used in computer vision and image processing. The Idea is that natural image can be pretty sparse when it is transformed to different bases. this bases can be ...

### Alternative to Orthogonal Matching Pursuit (OMP) Algorithm

The main advantage of OMP is that the residual is orthogonal to the current solution. Let's say you select all $k$ columns from $A$ (also called atoms) at once and let us also presume that $A$ is an ...

### What are the practical constraints on designing Sensing matrix in compressed Sensing?

Checking for RIP of a matrix is an NP-Hard problem which means it is not computationally feasible to accomplish. RIP is used in matrix design mostly in theoretical aspects. Stealing @David 's comments,...
