Sparse signal modeling often reconstructs a signal with few atoms from a pre-defined dictionary. Hence the choice of wavelet dictionary that represents the sparsity of the target signal is crucial in sparse modeling approach. The challenge of finding an optimal dictionary of different wavelet types using sparse denoising model (SDM) to denoise ECG signal is investigated in this work. A method of finding an optimal wavelet dictionary from a set of orthogonal wavelet sub-dictionaries by the means of the best correlation with ECG signal, is developed. The highly correlated sub-dictionaries from three wavelet dictionaries, namely daubechies, symlets, coiflets and discrete cosine transform are combined to construct an overcomplete dictionary. The weight of Akaike’s information criterion and the signal-to-noise ratio improvement are considered as a criterion to evaluate the performance of the proposed SDM. The results indicate that multi-wavelet dictionary of different types is highly sparse and efficient in denoising the target signal, e.g., ECG.
