Robust compressive sensing of sparse signals: A review
Compressive sensing generally relies on the L2-norm for data fidelity, whereas in many applications robust estimators are needed. Among the scenarios in which robust performance is required, applications where the sampling process is performed in the presence of impulsive noise, i.e. measurements are corrupted by outliers, are of particular importance. This article overviews robust nonlinear reconstruction strategies for sparse signals based on replacing the commonly used L2-norm by M-estimators as data fidelity functions. The derived methods outperform existing compressed sensing techniques in impulsive environments, while achieving good performance in light-tailed environments, thus offering a robust framework for CS.
