### Reference request: injectivity of CWT, density of dilations and translations in $L^p$

Recently, I encountered the notion of Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT), and I find it very intriguing (for a reference, see the wiki). I believe it offers a different and more general perspective on ...

### Multiplication with dilations of nonzero measurable function is injective

Denote $f_s(x):=f(sx)$ as the dilation of a function $f$. I want to know whether the following statement is true: Suppose $f$ and $g$ are measurable functions on $\mathbb{R}$, and $f$ is not almost ...

### Admissibility condition of wavelet functions

After a badly formulated question, I decided to make a new post searching for help. The basic problem is the follows: I have a wavelet function $\psi(t)$ (real or complex) and would like to compute (a)...

### Why for $\psi$ square-integrable function the zero mean condition is equivalent to $\hat{\psi}(0) = 0$?

I am studying the classical book "Ten Lectures on Wavelets" written by Ingrid Daubechies and I do not understand a specific point. I would appreciate it if someone could help me with ...

### Characterising wavelet frames using Fourier transform

As usual, for $f\in L^2(\mathbb R)$ $$D_j(f)(x) = 2^{j/2} f(2^jx), T_k(f)(x) = f(x-k)$$ and let $\{D_j T_k \varphi\}$ be a system of wavelets on $\mathbb R.$ A simple result is that, $T_k \varphi$ ...

### Multivariate continuous wavelet transform

I have used the continuous wavelet transform (CWT) and cross-wavelet transform (bivariate; XWT) several times while researching geophysical systems. I'm trying to understand how the XWT can be ...

### Morlet wavelet transform of binary dataset in R

I want to perform a Morlet Wavelet transform analysis (WTA) on a sequence of binary data (0, 1), length about 19000 observations. The result seems reasonable, but I have my doubts whether WTA can be ...

### 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 ...

### 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][1] 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 $$Λ_{l,m}^{d_1,d_2,d_3} = \int_{-\infty}^\infty \varphi^{(d_1)}(x) \varphi^{(d_2)}_l(x) \varphi^{(d_3)}_m(x) dx$$ for Daubechies ...

### 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 ...

### 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 ...
