In (4), the limit of the weight factor w = 1 corresponds only to the minimization of [F.sub.g]([P.sub.g]), while w = 0 corresponds only to minimization of [E.sub.g]([P.sub.g]).
(i) We systematically study the CoD-based methods for TV minimization and develop an extremely simple unified CoD-based solution for both anisotropic and isotropic TV minimization.
Similar to the TV problem [3-5], the TD problem in (1) can be solved iteratively using a two-step alternating minimization scheme [6,8].
Using the noise model enables both a fair noise comparison and minimization based on basic transistor parameters.
By the [l.sub.p]-norm minimization method we see that p=1.4 and p =1.6 are the best choice in Babble noise and factory noise, respectively.
Yet another respondent states as follows: "Trust takes time to develop between the parties, and it is very fragile, but once developed it outshines all the other strategies in terms of project control and risk minimization." Similarly, another respondent argues: "The most important document is the contract.
The adaptive TV minimization scheme retains the merit of the original method which preserves the geometrical information and performs the image denoising, while obtaining a solution image of high accuracy.
Evidence suggests that minimization allocation outperforms simple randomization, resulting in less chance of an imbalance of prognostic factors and treatment factors among groups.
According to the law of Lagrange, the image restoration based on TV minimization can be expressed as the following minimization problem:
for block-sparse signal recovery, as a generalization of the standard [l.sub.q] minimization, where [[parallel]x[parallel].sub.2,q] = [([[summation].sup.m.sub.i=1] [[parallel]x[i][parallel].sup.q.sub.2]).sup.1/q].
Official Synopsis of "The Raiders Minimization": "Sheldon seeks revenge after Amy ruins one of his favorite movies.
In Section 4, we estimate the unknown parameters form a small subset of Fourier series coefficients using CS based on the total-variation minimization. The results for the simulated and experimental radar signals are presented in Section 5.
