Title: Sparse Solutions and Their Applications
Abstract : We shall first explain the study of the sparse solution to underdetermined linear system. Several convex minimization and nonconvex computational methods will be explained. These include$\ell_1$-minimization,Orthogonal Matching Pursuit(OMP), alternating projection method(AP) and their variations. Next we shall explain some applications, sparse solution for numerical solution of PDE, matrix completion, and phase retrieval problem.
