Overview

Most existing books on wavelets are either too mathematical or they focus on too narrow a specialty. This book provides a thorough treatment of the subject from an engineering point of view. It is a one-stop source of theory, algorithms, applications, and computer codes related to wavelets. This second edition has been updated by the addition of:

  • a section on "Other Wavelets" that describes curvelets, ridgelets, lifting wavelets, etc
  • a section on lifting algorithms
  • Sections on Edge Detection and Geophysical Applications
  • Section on Multiresolution Time Domain Method (MRTD) and on Inverse problems

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is well-written, the material is arranged in a logical order...it is suggested to be read by image processing experts doing image analysis and image compressions and having good mathematical background." (CIE News Vol. 58)

"...will be extremely useful for signal processing engineers and scientists, all of whom should have a copy on their bookshelves" (Electronics & Communications Engineering Journal, December 2000)
