Implements the fast Laplace algorithm given a measurement matrix and samples
from a signal or function. Note that this function is a convenient wrapper
for the function `FastLaplace`

FindSparse(PHI, y, eta = 1e-08, roundit = FALSE, verbose = FALSE)
``` |

`PHI` |
typically equals the product of a measurment matrix and basis
representation matrix, such as the wavelet basis.
The solution vector |

`y` |
CS measurements, samples from the signal or function. |

`eta` |
tolerance level in determining convergence of marginal likelihood. |

`roundit` |
whether or not to round the marginal likelihood, in order to avoid machine precision error when comparing across platforms. |

`verbose` |
print to screen which basis are added, re-estimated, or deleted. |

This code implements the fast Laplace algorithm. The fast Laplace algorithm is a method used to solve the compressive sensing problem, or in general, a highly underdetermined system of equations. It does this by taking the system of equations

*y = Φ w + n*

and converting it into a minimization problem
where we minimize the error with a constraint on *w*
(the vector we are solving for) that enforces
sparsity. The fast Laplace method uses a Bayesian framework, and in
particular, uses a Laplace prior to enforce sparsity on *w*.
See [1] for more information.
