Algorithm 890: Sparco: A Testing Framework for Sparse Reconstruction. Sparco is a framework for testing and benchmarking algorithms for sparse reconstruction. It includes a large collection of sparse reconstruction problems drawn from the imaging, compressed sensing, and geophysics literature. Sparco is also a framework for implementing new test problems and can be used as a tool for reproducible research. Sparco is implemented entirely in Matlab, and is released as open-source software under the GNU Public License.

This software is also peer reviewed by journal TOMS.
