`wpfun`

is a wavelet packet
analysis function.

`[WPWS,X] = wpfun(`

computes
the wavelet packets for a wavelet * 'wname'*,NUM,PREC)

Output vector `X`

. The computation scheme for wavelet packets generation is easy
when using an orthogonal wavelet. We start with the two filters of
length 2*N*, denoted *h*(*n*)
and *g*(*n*), corresponding to the
wavelet.

Now by induction let us define the following sequence of functions
(*W _{n}*(

$$\begin{array}{l}{W}_{2n}(x)=\sqrt{2}{\displaystyle \sum _{k=0,\dots ,2N-1}h(k){W}_{n}(2x-k)}\\ {W}_{2n+1}(x)=\sqrt{2}{\displaystyle \sum _{k=0,\dots ,2N-1}g(k){W}_{n}(2x-k)}\end{array}$$

where *W _{0}*(

For example for the Haar wavelet we have

$$N=1,h(0)=h(1)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$$

and

$$g(0)=-g(1)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$$

The equations become

$${W}_{2n}(x)={W}_{n}(2x)+{W}_{n}(2x-1)$$

and

$$({W}_{2n+1}(x)={W}_{n}(2x)-{W}_{n}(2x-1))$$

*W _{0}*(

`haar`

scaling
function and `haar`

wavelet,
both supported in [0,1].Then we can obtain *W _{2}*

Starting from more regular original wavelets, using a similar
construction, we obtain smoothed versions of this system of *W*-functions,
all with support in the interval [0, 2*N*-1].
