In this paper, we propose a deep residual dense network (DRDN) for single image super- resolution. Based on human perceptual characteristics, the residual in residual dense block strategy (RRDB) is exploited to implement various depths in network architectures. The proposed model exhibits a simple sequential structure comprising residual and dense blocks with skip connections. It improves the stability and computational complexity of the network, as well as the perceptual quality. We adopt a

The proposed model is trained with the Diverse2k dataset, and the performance is evaluated using standard datasets. The experimental results confirm that the proposed model exhibits superior performance, with better reconstruction results and perceptual quality than conventional methods.
