While initial compressed sensing (CS) recovery techniques operated under the implicit assumption that the sparse domain coefficients are independently distributed, recent results have indicated that integrating a statistical or structural dependence model of sparse domain coefficients into CS enhances recovery. In this paper, we present a method for exploiting empirical dependences among wavelet coefficients during CS recovery using a Bayes least-square Gaussian-scale-mixture model. The proposed model is successfully incorporated into several recent CS algorithms, including reweighted l 1 minimization (RL1), iteratively reweighted least squares, and iterative hard thresholding. Extensive experiments including comparisons with a state-of-the-art model-based CS method demonstrate that the proposed algorithms are highly effective at reducing reconstruction error and/or the number of measurements required for a desired reconstruction quality.
