Solving Almost all Systems of Random Quadratic Equations

29 May 2017 Gang Wang Georgios B. Giannakis Yousef Saad Jie Chen

This paper deals with finding an $n$-dimensional solution $x$ to a system of quadratic equations of the form $y_i=|\langle{a}_i,x\rangle|^2$ for $1\le i \le m$, which is also known as phase retrieval and is NP-hard in general. We put forth a novel procedure for minimizing the amplitude-based least-squares empirical loss, that starts with a weighted maximal correlation initialization obtainable with a few power or Lanczos iterations, followed by successive refinements based upon a sequence of iteratively reweighted (generalized) gradient iterations...
