Compressive Sensing as applied to Electromagnetic Engineering
Recent Advances and Current Trends

Associate Professor, University of Trento, Italy

ABSTRACT: The paradigm of Compressive Sensing (CS) has emerged in the last few years as a flexible and powerful methodological strategy to address analysis and synthesis problems arising in many electromagnetic engineering academic and industrial applications. The success of CS techniques is motivated by several factors, including (i) their capability to address sampling/recovery problems overcoming the classical Nyquist/Shannon limits, (ii) the possibility to adapt them to several different scenarios, including communication system design, direction-of-arrival estimation, and microwave/radar imaging, (iii) the availability of powerful, effective, and numerically efficient implementations of CS sampling and retrieval algorithms. Within this framework, this keynote speech is aimed at illustrating a review of the recent advances in the state-of-the-art concerning CS as applied to several electromagnetic engineering problems, as well as at discussing some current research trends and open challenges in the field.
