@article{Mohimani2009AFA, title={A Fast Approach for Overcomplete Sparse Decomposition Based on Smoothed \$\ell ^\{0\}\$ Norm}, author={G. Hosein Mohimani and Massoud Babaie-Zadeh and Christian Jutten}, journal={IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing}, year={2009}, volume={57}, pages={289-301} }

In this paper, a fast algorithm for overcomplete sparse decomposition, called SL0, is proposed. The algorithm is essentially a method for obtaining sparse solutions of underdetermined systems of linear equations, and its applications include underdetermined sparse component analysis (SCA), atomic decomposition on overcomplete dictionaries, compressed sensing, and decoding real field codes. Contrary to previous methods, which usually solve this problem by minimizing the l 1 norm using linear…
