This book provides engineers, scientists, and students with a practicalunderstanding of wavelet transforms and their properties. The authorsintroduce the underlying theory of the transform by presenting a widerange of applications, which are drawn from the fields of signal processing,image processing, and communications. It identifies problems for whichwavelet transform techniques are well-suited, shows how to implement wavelettransforms efficiently, and explains how to choose or design appropriatewavelets for a given application. The authors present the material ina visual and comprehensive manner, using geometric analogies and filteringconcepts. The book is written in a language familiar to readers with abasic undergraduate engineering degree.
