Dictionary-Sparse Recovery From Heavy-Tailed Measurements

The recovery of signals that are sparse not in a given basis, but rather sparse with respect to an over-complete dictionary is one of the most flexible settings in the field of compressed sensing with numerous applications. As in the standard …

On the geometry of polytopes generated by heavy-tailed random vectors

We study the geometry of centrally-symmetric random polytopes, generated by $N$ independent copies of a random vector $X$ taking values in ${\mathbb{R}^n}$. We show that under minimal assumptions on $X$, for $N \gtrsim n$ and with high probability, …

Harmonic Mean Iteratively Reweighted Least Squares for Low-Rank Matrix Recovery

We propose a new iteratively reweighted least squares (IRLS) algorithm for the recovery of a matrix $X \in \mathbb{C}^{d_1 \times d_2}$ of rank $r \ll \min(d_1,d_2)$ from incomplete linear observations, solv- ing a sequence of low complexity linear …
