In this work we study the topic of high-resolution adaptive sampling of a given deterministic signal and establish a connection with classic approaches to high-rate quantization. Specifically, we formulate solutions for the task of optimal high-resolution sampling, counterparts of well-known results for high-rate quantization. Our results reveal that the optimal high-resolution sampling structure is determined by the density of the signal-gradient energy, just as the

The second is a theoretical analysis of nonuniform sampling relevant to the emerging field of high-resolution signal processing. The third is a new practical approach to nonuniform sampling of one-dimensional signals that enables reconstruction based only on the sampling time-points and the signal extrema locations and values. Experiments for signal sampling and coding showed that our method outperforms an optimized tree-structured sampling technique.
