Abstract: Phase retrieval aims at recovering a complex-valued signal from magnitude-only measurements, which attracts much attention since it has numerous applications in many disciplines. However, phase recovery involves solving a system of quadratic equations, indicating that it is a challenging nonconvex optimization problem. To tackle phase retrieval in an effective and efficient manner, we apply coordinate descent (CD) such that a single unknown is solved at each iteration while all other variables are kept fixed.…
