Abstract
The LOFAR Radio Telescope is a radio interferometer with multiple antennas placed throughout Europe. A radio interferometer samples the image of the sky in the Fourier domain; recovering the image from these samples is an inverse problem. In radio astronomy the CLEAN method has been used for many years to find a solution. Recent papers have established a link between radio interferometry and compressed sensing, which supports sparse recovery methods to reconstruct an image from interferometric data. The goal of this paper is to study sparse recovery methods on LOFAR data by comparing the accuracy of CLEAN and compressed sensing when applied to simulated LOFAR observations.
