### Discrete Wavelet Transform and L2 Basis

Using the mother wavlet $phi$ one obtains an orthonormal basis $\phi_{j,k}(x):=2^{j/2}\,\phi(2^j\,x-k)$of L^2 (on the unit interval say). Given a function $f$ on can calculate the coefficients using ...

### The Dunkl intertwining operator $V_k$ on $C(\mathbb{R}^d)$

The Dunkl intertwinig operator $V_k$ on $C(\mathbb{R}^d)$ is defined by:
$$V_k f(x)=\int_{\mathbb{R}^d}f(y)d\mu_x(y),$$
where $d\mu_x$ is a probability measure on $\mathbb{R}^d$ with support in the ...
