Sparse Approximation and Signal Recovery Algorithms

Abstract: Sparse approximation problems arise in a wide variety of applications in digital communications and big data problems. The lecture series will begin with basic mathematical formulations of sparse approximation and signal recovery problems. It will proceed with a discussion of greedy algorithms and convex methods such as basis pursuit, sublinear algorithms for streaming and sketching, and Fourier sampling methods. The lectures will conclude outlining specific applications such as GPS synchronization, spectrum sensing, and correlation spectroscopy.

The CBMS conference will be immediately preceded by the 16th New Mexico Analysis Seminar on Sunday afternoon, May 21. The 16th NMAS will consist entirely of contributed talks by CBMS participants who wish to present their recent work related to the theme of the Principal Lectures of the CBMS conference.  Please indicate on the registration form if you wish to contribute a short talk at the 16th NMAS.

We intend to cover room and board for participants who stay in campus housing (single room with shared ensuite). We expect to be able to provide at least partial travel funding for most participants. Priority will be given to junior participants without alternative sources of funding, females, and minorities. As funds are limited, please plan early to minimize travel expenses, and consider ride sharing if you are driving.

Some travel funding may still be available. Please contact organizers

Further Information, including additional CBMS speakers, will be updated here as it becomes available. Please contact organizers with any questions.
