I got the impression from the OP that A, x, and b were all _complex_ and not necessarily discrete or binary. The constraint is that the _magnitude_ of the individual elements of the complex x-vector, abs(x(k)) = 1 for all k. Thus my reply.

BTW, you?ve posted a number of elegant programming solutions, some of which I've found extremely useful. I suggest you create a function from your post in thread #319426 and upload it to FEX. I've seen the same question posted a few times since, so there seems a need for it.
