## Bregman Iterative Algorithms for L1 Minimization with Applications to Compressed Sensing

### Effectiveness of Bregman iteration as applied to compressed sensing and image restoration

#### Stanley Osher, University of California, Los Angeles

Bregman iterative regularization (1967) was introduced by Osher, Burger, Goldfarb, Xu, & Yin as a device for improving total variation (TV)-based image restoration (2004) and was used by Xu & Osher in (2006) to analyze and improve wavelet shrinkage. In recent work by Yin, Osher, Goldfarb, & Darbon, we devised simple and extremely efficient methods for solving the basis pursuit problem which is used in compressed sensing. A linearized version, done by Osher, Dong, Mao, & Yin, requires two lines of MATLAB code and is remarkably efficient. This means we rapidly and easily solve the problem: for a given matrix with and

By some beautiful results of Candes, Tao, and Donoho, this L1 minimization gives the sparsest solution under reasonable assumptions.
