Abstract : In a recent article, Schiebinger et al. provided sufficient conditions for the noiseless recovery of a signal made of M Dirac masses given 2M + 1 observations of, e.g. , its convolution with a Gaussian filter, using the Basis Pursuit for measures. In the present work, we show that a variant of their criterion provides a necessary and sufficient condition for the Non-Degenerate Source Condition (NDSC) which was introduced by Duval and Peyré to ensure support stability in super-resolution. We provide sufficient conditions which, for instance, hold unconditionally for the Laplace kernel provided one has at least 2M measurements. For the Gaussian filter, we show that those conditions are fulfilled in two very different configurations: samples which approximate the uniform Lebesgue measure or, more surprisingly, samples which are all confined in a sufficiently small interval.
