Today, I present my latest paper on phase retrieval. My coauthors are Boris Alexeev, Afonso Bandeira and Matt Fickus.

This one is a long time coming, considering I blogged about the main idea almost 6 months ago. But that blog entry only described our approach in the noiseless case, whereas the bulk of the paper actually tackles stability in the noisy case. This is an important stride for phase retrieval, considering the only provably stable alternative is PhaseLift/PhaseCut, while our approach is completely different.

To review, here’s the main idea: We have a collection of vectors that we use to measure our signal. If we could determine the phases of these measurements (up to a…
