Complex Daubechies Wavelets: Filters Design and Applications

  • J.-M. Lina


The first part of this work describes the full set of Daubechies Wavelets with a particular emphasis on symmetric (and complex) orthonormal bases. Some properties of the associated complex scaling functions are presented in a second part. The third and last part describes a multiscale image enhancement algorithm using the phase of the complex multiresolution representation of the 2 dimension signals.
