Project description

ci-badge cov-badge zenodo-badge

Least absolute deviations with L1 regularization using majorization-minimization. In estimation theory terms, this is the Maximum A Posterior (MAP) estimator for a Laplacian likelihood with Laplacian prior, i.e.


The MM algorithm update turns out to be


which belongs to the class of iterative reweighted least-squares:
