Publication# Shift-Orthogonal Wavelet Bases

Abstract

Shift-orthogonal wavelets are a new type of multiresolution wavelet bases that are orthogonal with respect to translation (or shifts) within one level, but not with respect to dilations across scales. In this paper, we characterize these wavelets and investigate their main properties by considering two general construction methods. In the first approach, we start by specifying the analysis and synthesis function spaces, and obtain the corresponding shift-orthogonal basis functions by suitable orthogonalization. In the second approach, we take the complementary view and start from the digital filterbank. We present several illustrative examples, including a hybrid version of the Battle-Lemarié spline wavelets. We also provide filterbank formulas for the fast wavelet algorithm. A shift-orthogonal wavelet transform is closely related to an orthogonal transform that uses the same primary scaling function; both transforms have essentially the same approximation properties. One experimentally confirmed benefit of relaxing the inter-scale orthogonality requirement is that we can design wavelets that decay faster than their orthogonal counterpart.

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.

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.

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.

Here we present a method of constructing steerable wavelet frames in L-2(R-d) that generalizes and unifies previous approaches, including Simoncelli's pyramid and Riesz wavelets. The motivation for steerable wavelets is the need to more accurately account ...

In analogy with steerable wavelets, we present a general construction of adaptable tight wavelet frames, with an emphasis on scaling operations. In particular, the derived wavelets can be "dilated" by a procedure comparable to the operation of steering ste ...
