Publication# The Fractional Hilbert Transform and Dual-Tree Gabor-Like Wavelet Analysis

Abstract

We provide an amplitude-phase representation of the dual-tree complex wavelet transform by extending the fixed quadrature relationship of the dual-tree wavelets to arbitrary phase-shifts using the fractional Hilbert transform (fHT). The fHT is a generalization of the Hilbert transform that extends the quadrature phase-shift action of the latter to arbitrary phase-shifts—a real shift parameter controls this phase-shift action. Next, based on the proposed representation and the observation that the fHT operator maps well-localized B-spline wavelets (that resemble Gaussian-windowed sinusoids) into B-spline wavelets of the same order but different shift, we relate the corresponding dual-tree scheme to the paradigm of multiresolution windowed Fourier analysis.

Wavelet transform

In mathematics, a wavelet series is a representation of a square-integrable (real- or complex-valued) function by a certain orthonormal series generated by a wavelet. This article provides a formal, mathematical definition of an orthonormal wavelet and of the integral wavelet transform. A function is called an orthonormal wavelet if it can be used to define a Hilbert basis, that is a complete orthonormal system, for the Hilbert space of square integrable functions.

Wavelet

A wavelet is a wave-like oscillation with an amplitude that begins at zero, increases or decreases, and then returns to zero one or more times. Wavelets are termed a "brief oscillation". A taxonomy of wavelets has been established, based on the number and direction of its pulses. Wavelets are imbued with specific properties that make them useful for signal processing. For example, a wavelet could be created to have a frequency of Middle C and a short duration of roughly one tenth of a second.

Discrete wavelet transform

In numerical analysis and functional analysis, a discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is any wavelet transform for which the wavelets are discretely sampled. As with other wavelet transforms, a key advantage it has over Fourier transforms is temporal resolution: it captures both frequency and location information (location in time). Haar wavelet The first DWT was invented by Hungarian mathematician Alfréd Haar. For an input represented by a list of numbers, the Haar wavelet transform may be considered to pair up input values, storing the difference and passing the sum.
