MX

The MX algorithm, due to (), is a variant of the CLARK algorithm in which the clean components are removed from the $uv$ table at each major cycle. This is the most precise way of removing the found clean components because it avoids aliasing of the dirty sidelobes. A direct consequence is that this method enable to clean the largest region of the dirty map. However, this is a relatively slow algorithm because the imaging step must be redone at each major cycle.
