Periodic Wavelets from Scratch

  • Gilbert G. Walter
  • Luchuan Cai


Periodic wavelets can be constructed from most standard wavelets by periodization. In this work we first derive some of their properties and then construct the periodic wavelets directly from their Fourier series without reference to standard wavelets. Several examples are given some of which are not constructable from the usual wavelets on the real line.
