## Global Linear and Local Superlinear Convergence of IRLS for Non-Smooth Robust Regression

We advance both the theory and practice of robust $\ell_p$-quasinorm regression for $p \in (0,1]$ by using novel variants of iteratively reweighted least-squares (IRLS) to solve the underlying non-smooth problem. In the convex case, $p=1$, we prove …

## A Quotient Property for Matrices with Heavy-Tailed Entries and its Application to Noise-Blind Compressed Sensing

For a large class of random matrices $A$ with i.i.d. entries we show that the $\ell_1$-quotient property holds with probability exponentially close to $1$. In contrast to previous results, our analysis does not require concentration of the entrywise …
