November 19, 2009

I suggest you read:
“Computational Methods for Sparse Solution of Linear Inverse Problems”
(Tropp and Wright)
.pdf
although the original paper:
“Greed is good: Algorithmic results for sparse approximation”
by J. A. Tropp.
IEEE Trans. Info. Theory, vol. 50, num. 10, pp. 2231-2242, Oct. 2004.
[ Paper .pdf ]
is excellent as well. See also:
