Therefore, compressed sensing is widely used in the image processing, where sparse solutions used for facial image identification or expression classification are a new direction in related fields.
To achieve better imaging performance, sparse reconstruction is commonly used, and the continuous space needs to be discretized to a fine grid and target-scattering centers are assumed to be exactly located at the center of these prediscretized grids [3].
