In an article published in the February 2011 issue of Science, compressed sensing (CS) is introduced as a radically new enabling information technology for scientific discovery with huge potential payoffs. CS for sparse signal processing is built upon rigorous mathematical foundation and enables acquisition of information contained within a huge volume of data using a small amount of measurement resources. A common approach to CS is the constrained l1-norm minimization.

In this talk, fundamental concepts, methods and algorithms of CS are first introduced. A new method called orthonormal expansion is then presented followed by two algorithms based on convex optimization: one exactly solves the problem, and the other is a relaxed version for simplifying the implementation. The optimal and iterative solution of these algorithms can provide fast and efficient CS processing and enables empirical investigation and evaluation of the sparsity-undersampling tradeoff of l1 minimization of complex-valued signals. Examples, including MRI image reconstruction, are given and possible applications of CS to medical imaging are discussed.
