New paper on compressive sensing

December, 3, 2009
Sylvain

Together with Alexandre Borghi and Jérome Darbon, we wrote a paper entitled Exact Optimization for the -Compressive Sensing problem using a Modified Dantzig-Wolfe method. the paper is available as a UCLA CAM Report here: cam09-101.pdf Here is the abstract: This paper considers the -Compressive Sensing problem and presents an efficient algorithm that computes an exact solution. The idea consists in reformulating the problem such that it yields a modified Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition that allows to efficiently apply all standard simplex pivoting rules. Experimental results show the superiority of our approach compared to standard linear programming methods. Comments are more than welcome!

Qest 2010 – Call For Papers

November, 30, 2009
Sylvain

Qest is a conference that I like for many reasons, and here is the call for papers for the 2010 edition of the conference. The conference website is here. Scope and Topics The International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems (QEST) is the leading forum on evaluation and verification of computer systems and networks, through stochastic models and measurements. QEST has a broad range of interest — the common thread is that the evaluation be quantitative. The range of performance metrics of interest spans classical measures involving performance and reliability, as well as quantification of properties that are classically qualitative, […]

First International Workshop on Quantitative Stochastic Models in the Verification and Design of Software Systems (QUOVADIS) Workshop at the ICSE 2010 3rd May 2010, Cape Town, South Africa http://deepse.dei.polimi.it/quovadis/ Motivation and Objectives: ========================== Modern software systems are increasingly complex and pervasive. They are often offered to clients as services, which must meet high level expectations in terms of predictability. They are embedded in a fluid environment that is constantly evolving, because of changes in the requirements, in the operating environment, and in usage profiles. Traditional software development processes and methods are unable to cope with the challenges posed by this […]

Testing triangular properties (2/2)

November, 18, 2009
Sylvain

To find the beginning of the triangular adventure, you should read this post. To prove the lemma we use the following theorem that I am not proving in this post (if you want the proof, just let me know). Theorem Consider urns each filled with balls, and the following process: pick a ball in an urn chosen uniformly at random until the chosen urn is empty. The probability that one had to pick more than balls tends to a nonzero constant as goes to infinity. Proof (of the lemma) To each triangle in associate an urn, filled with balls labeled […]
