### Discrete Wavelet Transform and Gaussian decay

I have a question regarding the possibility of constructing a Discrete Wavelet Transform based on a scaling function having Gaussian decay (and no more decay than that). More specifically, I am ...

### Basis for $L^2(\mathbb{R})$ that Solves the Heat Equation

This is a less-than-serious question that I asked on math.SE, but I suspect it is slightly more appropriate to ask it here. Consider the heat equation $$u_t = \frac12 u_{xx}$$ On $\mathbb{T}$ with ...

### Asymptotic form of $L^1$-norm of Hermite functions
Background Working on a quantum mechanics problem, I've stumbled on the problem of maximizing the functional $$\int_{A} \varphi_m \varphi_n$$ in the limit of large $m$ and $n$, given that $n \gg m$. ...
The inverse of the Weierstrass transform expands a function as a series of Hermite polynomials $H_{n}$. There are several ways to invert the Weierstrass transform which led me to the following ...
