Complex Data Processing: Fast Wavelet Analysis on the Sphere

In the general context of complex data processing, this article reviews a recent practical approach to the continuous wavelet formalism on the sphere. This formalism notably yields a correspondence principle which relates wavelets on the plane and on the sphere. Two fast algorithms are also presented for the analysis of signals on the sphere with steerable wavelets.
