4:30 PM | S-AMP for Non-linear Observation Models
AMP for nonlinear acquisition measurement systems. S-AMP for Non-linear Observation Models by Burak Çakmak, Ole Winther, Bernard H. Fleury Recently we extended Approximate message passing (AMP) algorithm to be able to handle general invariant matrix ensembles. In this contribution we extend our S-AMP approach to non-linear observation models. We obtain generalized AMP (GAMP) algorithm as the special case when the measurement matrix has zero-mean iid Gaussian entries. Our derivation […]
