The purpose of this paper is to present Micronde, a Matlab wavelet and wavelet packet toolbox for signals and images. Micronde’s capabilities and organization are described and its use both in command line and interface mode are illustrated. Real or synthetic signals as well as images are used to present wavelet-based analysis, de-noising and compression.
