Convolutional sparse representations are a form of sparse representation with a structured, translation invariant dictionary. Most convolutional dictionary learning algorithms to date operate in batch mode, requiring simultaneous access to all training images during the learning process, which results in very high memory usage and severely limits the training data that can be used. Very recently, however, a number of authors have considered the design of online convolutional dictionary learning algorithms that offer far better scaling of memory and computational cost with training set size than batch methods. This paper extends our prior work, improving a number of aspects of our previous algorithm; proposing an entirely new one, with better performance, and that supports the inclusion of a spatial mask for learning from incomplete data; and providing a rigorous theoretical analysis of these methods.

Appropriate selection of the penalty parameter is crucial to obtaining good performance from the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM). While analytic results for optimal selection of this parameter are very limited, there is a heuristic method that appears to be relatively successful in a number of different problems. The contribution of this paper is to demonstrate that their is a potentially serious flaw in this heuristic approach, and to propose a modification that at least partially addresses it.
