A restricted isometry property (RIP) condition is known to be sufficient for orthogonal matching pursuit (OMP) to exactly recover every K-sparse signal x from measurements . This paper is devoted to demonstrate that this condition is sharp. We construct a specific matrix with such that OMP cannot exactly recover some K-sparse signals.
