Title: Sparse Solutions in Random Quadratic optimization Problems
In recent years, the sparse solutions for certain classes of optimization problems have attracted much attention in numerous disciplines. In this talk, we report some results on sparse solutions for standard quadratic optimization problems with random data. We present probability inequalities related to order statistics that are used to establish the existence of sparse solutions and discuss some open problems.
