We are motivated by problems that arise in a number of applications such as explosives detection and online Marketing, where the observations are governed by Poisson statistics. Here each observation is a Poisson random variable whose mean is a sparse linear superposition of known patterns. Unlike many conventional problems observations here are not identically distributed since they are associated with different sensing modalities. We analyse the performance of a Maximum Likelihood (ML… CONTINUE READING
