Title: On Compressed Sensing and Dynamic Mode Decomposition


This talk is focused on the discussion regarding the development and application of compressed
sensing strategies for computing the dynamic mode decomposition (DMD) from heavily subsampled
or compressed data. The review was mainly done based on the paper of Brunton’s COMPRESSED
SENSING AND DYNAMIC MODE DECOMPOSITION [1]. The compressed sensing techniques developed
in this work result in DMD eigenvalues that are equivalent to those obtained from full-state data.
This is significant as it enables a consistent representation of system dynamics even with highly
reduced data. Using l1-minimization or greedy algorithms, the study demonstrates the possibility of
reconstructing full-state DMD eigenvectors from the compressed DMD eigenvalues. This
reconstruction allows for the recovery of detailed information about the system’s modes. These
results rely on a number of theoretical advances which is covered in this report. Also, effectiveness of
the proposed compressed sensing architecture is illustrated through two model systems where the
first example is on designing a spatial signal from a sparse vector of Fourier coefficients with a linear
dynamical system driving the coefficients and the second example is on a double gyre flow field,
which is a model for chaotic mixing in the ocean. So, the theoretical insights and practical
demonstrations enhance the understanding and applicability of DMD methodologies in diverse
