Let Φ : R N R M denote a sensing matrix and Δ : R M R N denote a recovery algorithm. We say that the pair ( Φ , Δ ) is C -stable if for any x Σ K and any e R M we have that

Δ Φ x + e - x 2 C e .

This definition simply says that if we add a small amount of noise to the measurements, then the impact of this on the recovered signal should not be arbitrarily large. [link] below demonstrates that the existence of any decoding algorithm (potentially impractical) that can stably recover from noisy measurements requires that Φ satisfy the lower bound of [link] with a constant determined by C .

  If the pair ( Φ , Δ ) is C -stable, then

1 C x 2 Φ x 2

for all x Σ 2 K .

Pick any x , z Σ K . Define

e x = Φ ( z - x ) 2 and e z = Φ ( x - z ) 2 ,

and note that

Φ x + e x = Φ z + e z = Φ ( x + z ) 2 .

Let x ^ = Δ ( Φ x + e x ) = Δ ( Φ z + e z ) . From the triangle inequality and the definition of C -stability, we have that

x - z 2 = x - x ^ + x ^ - z 2 x - x ^ 2 + x ^ - z 2 C e x + C e z 2 = C Φ x - Φ z 2 .

Since this holds for any x , z Σ K , the result follows.

Note that as C 1 , we have that Φ must satisfy the lower bound of [link] with δ K = 1 - 1 / C 2 0 . Thus, if we desire to reduce the impact of noise in our recovered signal then we must adjust Φ so that it satisfies the lower bound of [link] with a tighter constant.

One might respond to this result by arguing that since the upper bound is not necessary, we can avoid redesigning Φ simply by rescaling Φ so that as long as Φ satisfies the RIP with δ 2 K < 1 , the rescaled version α Φ will satisfy [link] for any constant C . In settings where the size of the noise is independent of our choice of Φ , this is a valid point — by scaling Φ we are simply adjusting the gain on the “signal” part of our measurements, and if increasing this gain does not impact the noise, then we can achieve arbitrarily high signal-to-noise ratios, so that eventually the noise is negligible compared to the signal.

However, in practice we will typically not be able to rescale Φ to be arbitrarily large. Moreover, in many practical settings the noise is not independent of Φ . For example, suppose that the noise vector e represents quantization noise produced by a finite dynamic range quantizer with B bits. Suppose the measurements lie in the interval [ - T , T ] , and we have adjusted the quantizer to capture this range. If we rescale Φ by α , then the measurements now lie between [ - α T , α T ] , and we must scale the dynamic range of our quantizer by α . In this case the resulting quantization error is simply α e , and we have achieved no reduction in the reconstruction error.

Measurement bounds

We can also consider how many measurements are necessary to achieve the RIP. If we ignore the impact of δ and focus only on the dimensions of the problem ( N , M , and K ) then we can establish a simple lower bound. We first provide a preliminary lemma that we will need in the proof of the main theorem.

Let K and N satisfying K < N / 2 be given. There exists a set X Σ K such that for any x X we have x 2 K and for any x , z X with x z ,

x - z 2 K / 2 ,


log | X | K 2 log N K .

We will begin by considering the set

U = x 0 , + 1 , - 1 N : x 0 = K .

By construction, x 2 2 = K for all x U . Thus if we construct X by picking elements from U then we automatically have x 2 K .

Next, observe that | U | = N K 2 K . Note also that x - z 0 x - z 2 2 , and thus if x - z 2 2 K / 2 then x - z 0 K / 2 . From this we observe that for any fixed x U ,

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
