An alternative theory to Nyquist’s Law that indicates signals and images can be reconstructed from fewer measurements than what is usually considered necessary. In contrast, Nyquist’s Law states that a signal must be sampled at least twice its highest analog frequency in order to extract all of the information. Also called compressive sampling.
