Abstract

Alternating projection (AP) of various forms, including the Parallel AP (PAP), Real-constrained AP (RAP) and the Serial AP (SAP), are proposed to solve phase retrieval with at most two coded diffraction patterns. The proofs of geometric convergence are given with sharp bounds on the rates of convergence in terms of a spectral gap condition. To compensate for the local nature of convergence, the null initialization is proposed for initial guess and proved to produce asymptotically accurate initialization for the case of Gaussian random measurement. Numerical experiments show that the null initialization produces more accurate initial guess than the spectral initialization and that AP converges faster to the true object than other iterative schemes for non-convex optimization such as the Wirtinger Flow. In numerical experiments, AP with the null initialization converges globally to the true object.
