### Empi

Empi, which stands for *enhanced matching pursuit implementation*, is a parallel (fast) implementation of matching pursuit algorithm, based on the construction of optimal Gabor dictionary proposed in BioMedical Engineering OnLine. Simple speaking, it is a computer program to represent a given signal (e.g. sound waveform or EEG) as a combination of simple, oscillating structures defined in time and frequency. This implementation is backward-compatible with its predecessor MP5, which makes it suitable for use as an MP plugin in SVAROG.

This is still a work in progress, but the results so far have been published e.g. in IET Signal Processing. The project's source code is available on GitHub.
