A Unifying Tutorial on Approximate Message Passing
Over the last decade or so, Approximate Message Passing (AMP) algorithms have become extremely popular in various structured high-dimensional statistical problems. The fact that the origins of these techniques can be traced back to notions of belief propagation in the statistical physics literature lends a certain mystique to the area for many statisticians. Our goal in this work is to present the main ideas of AMP from a statistical perspective, to illustrate the power and flexibility of the AMP framework. Along the way, we strengthen and unify many of the results in the existing literature.
