Yet another book on wavelets. There are many books on wavelets available, written for readers with different backgrounds. But the topic is becoming ever more important in mainstream signal processing, since the new JPEG2000 standard is based on wavelet techniques. Wavelet techniques are also impor tant in the MPEG-4 standard. So we thought that there might be room for yet another book on wavelets.
Reference This is a tutorial introduction to the discrete wavelet transform. It is based on the book A. Jensen and A. La Cour-Harbo: Ripples in Mathematics.
This one is limited in scope, since it only covers the discrete wavelet trans form, which is central in modern digital signal processing. The presentation is based on the lifting technique discovered by W. Sweldens in 1994. Due to a result by I.
Daubechies and W. Sweldens from 1996 this approach covers the same class of discrete wavelet transforms as the one based on two channel filter banks with perfect reconstruction. The goal of this book is to enable readers, with modest backgrounds in mathematics, signal analysis, and programming, to understand wavelet based techniques in signal analysis, and perhaps to enable them to apply such methods to real world problems. The book started as a set of lecture notes, written in Danish, for a group of teachers of signal analysis at Danish Engineering Colleges.
The material has also been presented to groups of engineers working in industry, and used in mathematics courses at Aalborg University. From the reviews: 'This book is a very well-written introduction to discrete wavelet transforms, very convenient for students in electrical engineering, computer science, and applied mathematics. It is based on the lifting approach to discrete wavelet transforms. MATLAB is used as the computational environment for examples and implementations of discrete wavelet transforms.' (Manfred Tasche, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 989 (14), 2002) 'This is an algorithm based, completely elementary introduction to the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and wavelet packet transform, easy to read and easy to understand, well suited for an introductory course on wavelets for undergraduate students of applied sciences or mathematics. Implementations and examples using basic Matlab (TM) as well as the public domain ubi-wave wavelet toolbox help to further a deeper understanding of the algorithms.'
Cenker, Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten, Vol. 56 (189), 2002) 'This book gives an introduction to the discrete wavelet transform and some of its applications. It is based on a novel approach to discrete wavelets called lifting.

The book is well suited for undergraduate mathematics and electrical engineering students and engineers in industry.' (ETDE Energy Database, December, 2001).
Jensen Editor: Springer Science & Business Media ISBN: Size: 19,92 MB Format: PDF, ePub, Docs Read: 984 This introduction to the discrete wavelet transform and its applications is based on a novel approach to discrete wavelets called lifting. After an elementary introduction, connections of filter theory are presented, and wavelet packet transforms are defined. The time-frequency plane is used for interpretation of signals, problems with finite length signals are detailed, and MATLAB is used for examples and implementation of transforms.
Author: Patrick J. Van Fleet Editor: John Wiley & Sons ISBN: Size: 20,79 MB Format: PDF, Kindle Read: 174 An 'applications first' approach to discrete wavelettransformations Discrete Wavelet Transformations provides readers with a broadelementary introduction to discrete wavelet transformations andtheir applications. With extensive graphical displays, thisself-contained book integrates concepts from calculus and linearalgebra into the construction of wavelet transformations and theirvarious applications, including data compression, edge detection inimages, and signal and image denoising. The book begins with a cursory look at wavelet transformationdevelopment and illustrates its allure in digital signal and imageapplications. Next, a chapter on digital image basics, quantitativeand qualitative measures, and Huffman coding equips readers withthe tools necessary to develop a comprehensive understanding of theapplications.
