2-D approximation coefficients


A = appcoef2(C,S,'wname',N)
A = appcoef2(C,S,'wname')
A = appcoef2(C,S,Lo_R,Hi_R)
A = appcoef2(C,S,Lo_R,Hi_R,N)


appcoef2 is a two-dimensional wavelet analysis function. It computes the approximation coefficients of a two-dimensional signal. The syntaxes allow you to give the wavelet name or the filters as inputs.

A = appcoef2(C,S,'wname',N) computes the approximation coefficients at level N using the wavelet decomposition structure [C,S] (see wavedec2 for more information).

'wname' is a character vector containing the wavelet name. Level N must be an integer such that 0 N size(S,1)-2.

A = appcoef2(C,S,'wname') extracts the approximation coefficients at the last level: size(S,1)-2.

A = appcoef2(C,S,Lo_R,Hi_R) or A = appcoef2(C,S,Lo_R,Hi_R,N), Lo_R is the reconstruction low-pass filter and Hi_R is the reconstruction high-pass filter (see wfilters for more information).

If C and S are obtained from an indexed image analysis or a truecolor image analysis, A is an m-by-n matrix or an m-by-n-by-3 array, respectively.

For more information on image formats, see the image and imfinfo reference pages.


The algorithm is built on the same principle as appcoef.
