Typically, 0.5≤β≤1.

It was pointed out in Remark 4.1 of Ref. 9that a more literal reformulation of Eq. (13) leads to (31)(∀t∈X)xn+1(t)=(PM(xn))(t)if t∈D or (PM(xn))(t)=0xn(t)-β(PM(xn))(t)otherwise.Under the assumption that the zero crossings of PM(xn)outside of Dare negligible, Eq. (31) reduces to Eq. (14). In digital computing, this assumption is justified by the fact that the probability of obtaining zero numbers is virtually zero.

If m=0,then x=0is the unique solution of the corresponding phase-retrieval problem.

For the BIO algorithm, this was already pointed out in Remark 5.6 of Ref. 9.

We stress that monitoring the sequences (PM(xn))n∈Nand (PS+PM(xn))n∈Nis well motivated from the convex consistent setting. Replace the nonconvex set Mand its corresponding projector PMwith the convex set Band the corre-sponding projector PB.If S+∩B≠∅,then, using the results in Ref. 9, one can prove that ES+(xn)→0with equality precisely when PB(xn)∈S+∩B.However, if S+∩B=∅,which is likely a better approximation of the geometry of the phase-retrieval problem, then minimizing ES+(xn)corresponds to finding a displacement vector for S+and Bin the sense of Ref. 19. If the problem is feasible but ES+(xn)is positive, then the algorithm has stagnated, and the value of ES+(xn)is an indicator of the quality of the stagnation point.

In general, the object-domain space need not be restricted to real-valued signals. For a review of a phase-retrieval application in which the iterates are complex valued, see Ref. 12.
