Analysis of Orthogonal Matching Pursuit for Compressed Sensing in Practical Settings

More Info


Orthogonal matching pursuit (OMP) is a widely used greedy algorithm for sparse signal recovery in compressed sensing (CS). Prior work on OMP, however, has only provided reconstruction guarantees under the assumption that the columns of the CS matrix have equal norms, which is unrealistic in many practical CS applications due to hardware constraints. In this paper, we derive sparse recovery guarantees with OMP, when the CS matrix has unequal column norms. Finally, we show that CS matrices whose column norms are comparable achieve tight guarantees for the successful recovery of the support of a sparse signal and a low mean squared error in the estimate.
