A mathematical introduction to compressive sensing [Book Review]
A mathematical introduction to compressive sensing by Simon Foucart and Holger Rauhut [FR13] is about sparse solutions to systems of random linear equations. To begin, let me describe some striking phenomena that take place in this context. Afterward, I shall try to explain why these facts have captivated so many researchers over the last decade. I shall conclude with some comments on the book.
