SMALLbox is a new foundational framework for processing signals, using adaptive sparse structured representations. The main aim of SMALLbox is to become a test ground for exploration of new provably good methods to obtain inherently data-driven sparse models, able to cope with large-scale and complicated data. The toolbox provides an easy way to evaluate these methods against state-of-the art alternatives in a variety of standard signal processing problems. This is achieved trough a unifying

In addition, it provides interoperability between existing state-of-the-art toolboxes. As an open source MATLAB toolbox, it can be also seen as a tool for reproducible research in the sparse representations research community.
