    Compressed sensing (CS) is a relatively new area of signal processing and statistics that focuses on signal reconstruction from a small number of linear (e.g., dot product) measurements. In this paper, we analyze CS using tools from coding theory because CS can also be viewed as syndrome-based source coding of sparse vectors using linear codes over real numbers. While coding theory does not typically deal with codes over real numbers, there is actually a very close relationship between CS and error-correcting codes over large discrete alphabets. This connection leads naturally to new reconstruction methods and analysis. In some cases, the resulting methods provably require many fewer measurements than previous approaches.
