IEEE In recent years, the sparse coding based techniques have been widely used for image denoising. However, most of the sparse coding based mixed noise reduction methods fail to take full advantage of the geometric structure of data samples. In other words, they neglect the common information shared by the similar patches in sparse coding. To address this concern, in this paper we propose a Robust Constrained Sparse Representation (RCSR) method to remove mixed noise. By using the center coefficient of similar patches as the guider which is approximated by the coefficient of query patch in sparse coding, the geometric structure of data can be well preserved. Moreover, different from most existing two-stage mixed noise reduction methods that use explicit detectors to restrain impulse noise, the proposed RCSR adaptively adjusts the contribution of each pixel in the loss function to eliminate the influences of outliers. Experiments on the reconstruction of synthetic data and the removal of mixed noise in real images demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed method.
