A fixed point framework for recovering signals from nonlinear transformations

We consider the problem of recovering a signal from nonlinear transformations, under convex constraints modeling a priori information. Standard feasibility and optimization methods are ill-suited to tackle this problem due to the nonlinearities. We show that, in many common applications, the transformation model can be associated with fixed point equations involving firmly nonexpansive operators. In turn, the recovery problem is reduced to a tractable common fixed point formulation, which is solved efficiently by a provably convergent, block-iterative algorithm. Applications to signal and image recovery are demonstrated. Inconsistent problems are also addressed.
