This paper deals with sparse phase retrieval, i.e., the problem of estimating a vector from quadratic measurements under the assumption that few components are nonzero. In particular, we consider the problem of finding the sparsest vector consistent with the measurements and reformulate it as a group-sparse optimization problem with linear constraints. Then, we analyze the convex relaxation of the latter based on the minimization of a block l1-norm and show various exact recovery and stability results in the real and complex cases. Invariance to circular shifts and reflections are also discussed for real vectors measured via complex matrices.
Improved Recovery Guarantees for Phase Retrieval from Coded Diffraction Patterns by David Gross, Felix Krahmer, Richard Kueng
In this work we analyze the problem of phase retrieval from Fourier measurements with random diffraction patterns. To this end, we consider the recently introduced PhaseLift algorithm, which expresses the problem in the language of convex optimization. We provide recovery guarantees which require O(log^2 d) different diffraction patterns, thus improving on recent results by Candes et al. [arXiv:1310.3240], which require O(log^4 d) different patterns.
