%X Sparse representation has long been studied and several
dictionary learning methods have been proposed. The dictionary
learning methods are widely used because they are adaptive. In this
paper, a new dictionary learning method for audio is proposed. Signals
are at first decomposed into different degrees of Intrinsic Mode
Functions (IMF) using Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD)
technique. Then these IMFs form a learned dictionary. To reduce the
size of the dictionary, the K-means method is applied to the dictionary
to generate a K-EMD dictionary. Compared to K-SVD algorithm, the
K-EMD dictionary decomposes audio signals into structured
components, thus the sparsity of the representation is increased by
34.4% and the SNR of the recovered audio signals is increased by
20.9%.
