We develop a mathematical theory to explain the mechanism of super-resolution in resonant media which consists of sub-wavelength resonators. Examples includes: Helmholtz resonators, plasmonic particles, and bubbles. For the media consists of small finite number of resonators, we show that super-resolution is due to sub-wavelength propagating modes; for the case of large number of resonators, we derive an effective media theory and show that super-resolution is due to the effective high contrast in the wave speed.

In this talk, we explore the performance limits of recovering structured signals from low-dimensional linear projections, using tools from high dimensional convex geometry. In particular, we focus on two signal reconstruction applications: a total variation minimization for recovering gradient-sparse signals and a low-rank Hankel matrix completion for super-resolution of spectrally sparse signals. Using the tool of Gaussian width, we obtain counter-intuitive performance bounds on the sample complexity for these two applications.
