Coherence and sufficient sampling densities for reconstruction in compressed sensing
Franz J. Király, Louis Theran – 2013
-Focus Area 1: High-complexity Geometry - We give a new, very general, formulation of the compressed sensing problem in terms of coordinate projections of an analytic variety, and derive sufficient sampling rates for signal reconstruction. Our bounds are linear in the coherence of the signal space, a geometric parameter independent of the specific signal and measurement, and logarithmic in the ambient dimension where the signal is presented. We exemplify our approach by deriving sufficient sampling densities for low-rank matrix completion and distance matrix completion which are independent of the true matrix.
