# On the Performance of Sparse Recovery Via lp-Minimization (0 <= p <= 1)

@article{Wang2011OnTP, title={On the Performance of Sparse Recovery Via lp-Minimization (0 <= p <= 1)}, author={Meng Wang and Weiyu Xu and Ao Tang}, journal={IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory}, year={2011}, volume={57}, pages={7255-7278} }

It is known that a high-dimensional sparse vector x* in TV can be recovered from low-dimensional measurements y = Ax* where Am×n(m <; n) is the measurement matrix. In this paper, with A being a random Gaussian matrix, we investigate the recovering ability of lp-minimization (0 ≤ p ≤ 1) as p varies, where lp-minimization returns a vector with the least lp quasi norm among all the vectors x satisfying Ax = y. Besides analyzing the performance of strong recovery where lp-minimization is re quired…

It is proved that for highly correlated dictionaries A, any non-negative, sufficiently sparse signal x can be recovered by solving an l1-minimization problem: min ‖x‖ 1 + ‖e‚ 1 subject to y = Ax + e, which suggests that accurate and efficient recovery of sparse signals is possible even with nearly 100% of the observations corrupted.
