In this paper, we propose, describe, and test a modification of the K-SVD algorithm. Given a set of training data, the proposed algorithm computes an overcomplete dictionary by minimizing the β-divergence (β>=1) between the data and its representation as linear combinations of atoms of the dictionary, under strict sparsity restrictions. For the special case β=2, the proposed algorithm minimizes the Frobenius norm and, therefore, for β=2 the proposed algorithm is equivalent to the original K-SVD algorithm. We describe the modifications needed and discuss the possible shortcomings of the new algorithm. The algorithm is tested with random matrices and with an example based on speech separation.
