CASE STUDY SUMMARY

SPARCO is a suite of problems for testing and benchmarking algorithms for sparse signal reconstruction, Berg et al. (2007, 2008). It is also an environment for creating new test problems. Also a suite of standard linear operators is provided from which new problems can be assembled. SPARCO is implemented entirely in MATLABand is self contained.
This case study presents problem formulations and its solutions for a set of sparse reconstruction problems taken from SPARCO toolbox.
Problems included in the SPARCO toolbox were initially considered by different authors in different application areas: imaging, compressed sensing, geophysics, information compressing, etc. Relevant references can be found in the SPARCO toolbox.
The objective of Sparse Reconstruction is to find a decision vector which has a small number of non-zero components and satisfies exactly or almost exactly a system of linear equations. There are many variants of optimization formulations of such problems.
This case study is described in paper Boyko et al. (2011).
We solved many problems included in SPARCO toolbox problems in so called “L1Relaxed D” formulation. “L1Relaxed D” minimizes L1-error of regression with one linear inequality on the sum of decision vector components; the decision vector components are nonnegative (number of decision variables is doubled to achieve non-negativity). The non-negativity of variables is quite important because an optimal vector contains many zero variables. To investigate property of solution we solved various problems with different values of upper bound in the linear inequality and calculated cardinality and max functions in optimal points.
Some problems were solved in so called “L1Relaxed” formulation with original set of variables (without doubling the number of variables to achieve non-negativity). Variables are bounded by box constraints in this formulation. For these problems “L1Relaxed” formulation is more effective compared to “L1Relaxed D” formulation.
Additionally many problems were solved in so called “L2 D” or LASSO formulation which also has double set of variables but does not have constraints.
Sum of decision variables multiplied by some coefficient is used as regularization term in the objective function.
This problem can be easy solved by methods for unconstrained optimization.
We used SPARCO toolbox software to extract data for the considered problems. SPARCO toolbox provides a set of operators to deal with data.
We converted the problems data to PSG format and solved them in PSG Run-File environment.
In the problem formulations we have included several “dummy” functions multiplied by 0 (zero). Such “dummy” functions do not not impact solution process, but values of these functions are printed in the final solution file.

For instance, you can view many “dummy” functions in the following problem formulation:
problem: problem_602_Relaxed_700, type = minimize
objective: objective_new, linearize = 1
meanabs_pen_obj(matrix_ab602)
constraint: constraint_card, upper_bound = 700, linearize = 1
polynom_abs_S(matrix_card4096)
0 * cardn_1(1.,matrix_card4096)
0 * cardn_2(0.1,matrix_card4096)
0 * cardn_3(0.01,matrix_card4096)
0 * cardn_4(0.001,matrix_card4096)
0 * cardn_5(0.0001,matrix_card4096)
0 * cardn_6(0.00001,matrix_card4096)
0 * max_comp_pos_7(matrix_card4096)
0 * max_comp_neg_8(matrix_card4096)
box_of_variables: lowerbounds = -40, upperbounds = +40
