In this paper, we propose a new smoothing strategy along with conjugate gradient algorithm for the signal reconstruction problem. Theoretically, the proposed conjugate gradient algorithm along with the smoothing functions for the absolute value function is shown to possess some nice properties which guarantee global convergence. Numerical experiments and comparisons suggest that the proposed algorithm is an efficient approach for sparse recovery. Moreover, we demonstrate that the approach has some advantages over some existing solvers for the signal reconstruction problem.
