  • Abstract

In this paper, we discuss a gradient-enhanced ℓ1 approach for the recovery of sparse Fourier expansions. By gradient-enhanced approaches we mean that the directional derivatives along given vectors are utilized to improve the sparse approximations. We first consider the case where both the function values and the directional derivatives at sampling points are known. We show that, under some mild conditions, the inclusion of the derivatives information can indeed decrease the coherence of measurement matrix, and thus leads to the improved the sparse recovery conditions of the ℓ1 minimization. We also consider the case where either the function values or the directional derivatives are known at the sampling points, in which we present a sufficient condition under which the measurement matrix satisfies RIP, provided that the samples are distributed according to the uniform measure. This result shows that the derivatives information plays a similar role as that of the function values. Several numerical examples are presented to support the theoretical statements. Potential applications to function (Hermite-type) interpolations and uncertainty quantification are also discussed.
