Using Wavelets for Analyzing Ultrasonic Fields Detected by a Laser Interferometer. Basic Concepts of the Wavelet Analysis

  • D. V. Perov
  • A. B. Rinkevich


The basic concepts of the wavelet analysis are outlined. An example of using the wavelet transform to analyze ultrasonic fields detected by a laser interferometer on the surface of an elastic medium is considered.
