Discrete Wavelet Analysis

  • Ton J. Cleophas

Wavelets are oscillations, supposedly resulting from multiple smaller wavelets, and they are, traditionally, analyzed with polynomial, sine and cosine, and other functions. Ingrid Daubechies (1988) demonstrated that the repeated use of sharply spiked functions with multiple scales as basis functions for wavelet analysis provided better data-fit, and called it discrete wavelet analysis.
