Data dimensionality reduction in radio interferometry can provide savings of computational resources for image reconstruction through reduced memory footprints and lighter computations per iteration, which is important for the scalability of imaging methods to the big data setting of the next-generation telescopes. This article sheds new light on dimensionality reduction from the perspective of compressed sensing theory and studies its interplay with imaging algorithms designed in the context…

Fourier dimensionality reduction of radio-interferometric data
A novel linear dimensionality reduction technique consisting of a linear embedding to the space spanned by the left singular vectors of the measurement operator is described, which is shown to be practically implemented through a weighted subsampled Fourier transform of the dirty image.
Fourier dimensionality reduction for fast radio transients
A dimensionality reduction method to tackle big data challenge, which can be incorporated with FRT imaging methods as an upstream data pre-processing module is presented and the preliminary results on simulated FRT showcase that the proposeddimensionality reduction can simultaneously reduce the data significantly and recover FRT correctly, while the averaging technique causes the FRT dilution problem.

A parallel and automatically tuned algorithm for multispectral image deconvolution
This work proposes a scalable wide-band deconvolution algorithm called MUFFIN, which stands for ‘MUlti Frequency image reconstruction For radio INterferometry’, which is endowed with a parallel implementation and an automatic tuning of the regularization parameters, making it scalable and well suited for big data applications such as SKA.
Fast algorithms to approximate the position-dependent point spread function responses in radio interferometric wide-field imaging

Compressed sensing for infrared interferometric imaging
Interferometry is a high resolution technique that enables us to study physical processes at the smallest spatial scales that we can probe with our telescopes. In the infrared and in
Trading Beams for Bandwidth: Imaging with Randomized Beamforming
This work describes how the range limit imposes structure in the measurements across multiple wavelengths, and introduces a novel trade-off that results in a reduction in the number of required spatial measurements in an array imaging system and hence can directly impact their speed and cost of operation.

PURIFY: a new approach to radio-interferometric imaging
The authors release a beta version of an SDMM-based imaging software written in C and dubbed PURIFY that handles various sparsity priors, including the recent average sparsity approach SARA, and evaluates the performance of different priors through simulations in the continuous visibility setting, confirming the superiority of SARA.

This sparse reconstruction method is compatible with modern interferometric imagers that handle DDE corrections (A- and W-projections) required for current and future instruments such as LOFAR and SKA.
Multi-frequency image reconstruction for radio interferometry. A regularized inverse problem approach
It is shown that the main computational bottleneck of the approach, which lies in the resolution of a linear system, can be efficiently overcome by a fully parallel implementation w.r.t. the frequencies, where each processor reconstructs a narrow-band image.
MORESANE: MOdel REconstruction by Synthesis-ANalysis Estimators - A sparse deconvolution algorithm for radio interferometric imaging
This paper presents a new radio deconvolution algorithm named MORESANE and its application to fully realistic simulated data of MeerKAT, one of the SKA precursors and indicates that MORESAN provides competitive results in terms of both total flux/surface brightness conservation and fidelity of the reconstructed model.
