Polonez project

Compressed sensing and quantum many-body physics

In both, compressed sensing and quantum many-body physics, a central task is to find and use suitable descriptions of the central degrees of freedom of a signal or system. In fact, also the methods to exploit them are often similar and have lead to breakthrough results in both fields [arXiv:0909.3304, arXiv:0910.1879]. Methods from quantum physics concerning concentration bounds [arXiv:quant-ph/0012127] and tensor network methods and feature strongly in compressed sensing and, also the other way around, compressed sensing methods are crucial in the reduction of the measurement effort in tomographic tasks in quantum physics. Also convex optimization methods are important (proof) tools in both fields. The underlying idea of this project is to used synergy effects when working in both fields simultaneously.
