  5. Accelerated deconvolution of radio interferometric images using orthogonal matching pursuit and graphics hardware
    Van Belle, Jonathan, 2017-01-24T09:15:14Z, University of Cape Town
    Deconvolution of native radio interferometric images constitutes a major computational component of the radio astronomy imaging process. An efficient and robust deconvolution operation is essential for reconstruction of the true sky signal from measured correlator data. Traditionally, radio astronom ...
