### 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] 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 ...

### Wavelet transform stability to deformations

I've come across the following claim in a paper of Mallat: "High frequency instabilities [of a signal representation] to deformations can be avoided by grouping frequencies into dyadic packets in ...

### Wavelets in the spaces of harmonic functions

I plan to do something with the theory of wavelets but in harmonic function theory. My question is about this interconnection between wavelets and harmonic functions. Can you recommend me some paper ...

### How to bound Haar coefficients in terms of total variation?

I'm trying to get the basic idea behind the proof of Theorem 8.1 of this paper, but I'm having difficulty. Specifically, it says: We shall show that there is a set $\Lambda_n\subset\mathcal{D}$ such ...

### 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 intertwining 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 ...

I'm using a wavelet transform in Matlab, so I think of it as a black-box. I'll represent it here as $W(x)$. There's a reconstruction function as well, which I'll write as $W^\dagger(y)$. I can ...
