Is there a transform similar to the shearlet transform that uses a rotation matrix rather than shearing?

I Have been working in wavelet and shearlet analysis for the past couple of months. However I am working in the analysis side rather than the numerics side. In my work I have been considering the ...

Characterization of general frame function given a frame wavelet set

Let $E$ be a Lebesgue measurable set. $x,y\in E$ are $\tau$ equivalent iff $x=y+2n\pi$ for some integer $n.$ The $\tau$ index of a point $x\in E$ is the number of elements in it's equivalence class ...

Example of (not necessarily compactly supported) Hölder continuous wavelet?

In Chapter six of “Ten lectures on wavelets” Daubechies presents a construction of compactly supported Hölder continuous wavelets. However, it seems that those wavelets cannot be represented by some ...

Obtain continuous wavelet transform from discrete wavelet transform

I have some function $f:[0,1]\to\mathbb R$ sampled on a grid, i.e. I have values $\{f(k/2^J):~k=0,\ldots, 2^J-1\}$. It is easy to compute the (Haar) wavelet transform on this discrete dataset. Now I'd ...

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 ...

Can the wavelet bispectrum be normalised so that its integral “gives the right answer”?

Fix a rapidly decreasing function $\psi \in \mathcal{S}(\mathbb{R})$ with the properties that $\int_\mathbb{R} \psi = 0$, $\mathrm{Re}(\psi(\cdot))$ is an even function, and $\mathrm{Im}(\psi(\cdot))$ ...

Power Spectral Density from a wavelet transform?

Is there anyway to obtain the Fourier Power Spectral Density from a [wavelet transform] of a time series? I am particularly interested in this problem because I was wondering if there is any ...

Why is ideal wavelet selection a least-squares estimate?

In their classic paper "Ideal spatial adaptation by wavelet shrinkage" (http://biomet.oxfordjournals.org/content/81/3/425.short?rss=1&ssource=mfr), Donoho and Johnstone make the following ...

What is the analogue of expansive matrix for automorphisms?

We say an invertible $n \times n$ matrix with entries in $\Bbb R^n$ is expansive if the absolute values of all of its eigenvalues exceed $1$. An easy calculation also shows that if we consider a ball ...

Computing 3-term Connection Coefficients for Wavelets

I am trying to calculate the three-term connection coefficients $$Λ_{l,m}^{d_1,d_2,d_3} = ∫_{-∞}^∞ φ^{(d_1)}(x) φ^{(d_2)}_l(x) φ^{(d_3)}_m(x) dx$$ for Daubechies wavelets numerically using Python. ...

In which sense Daubechies wavelets converge to the Shannon wavelet?

My question is about wavelets theory. Consider $\psi_n$ the Daubechies wavelet of order $n \geq 1$; that is, the Daubechies wavelet with $n$ vanishing moments. We also define the Shannon wavelet in ...

Wavelet-like Schauder basis for standard spaces of test functions?

Edit: A more precise formulation of my question follows the separation line. The Schwartz space of test functions $\mathcal{S}(\mathbb{R})$ is isomorphic to $\mathfrak{s}$ the space of sequences of ...

Decomposing a discrete signal into a sum of rectangle functions

Hello mathoverflow community ! I have a simple question that seems to have a non trivial answer. Given a discrete one dimensional signal $w(x)$ defined in a finite range, and the boxcar (rectangular)...

Interpolating Wavelet Coefficients

Hi! I was instructed via reddit that this place would be the best place to post this question. Fingers cross you can help... Ive been writing some code to get rid of noise "spikes" in a signal. I'm ...

When does a mother wavelet generate a frame?

This question is about conditions on a mother wavelet that generates a countable familily of child wavelets via scaling and translation, that are both necessary and sufficient for the child wavelets ...
