The contributors to Subband and Wavelet Transforms: Design and Applications are distinguished scholars, drawn from prominent research laboratories and universities around the world.
The first six chapters of the book are devoted to theory and design, each having a unique focus and perspective. The remaining seven chapters use the foundation built in the first part to address specific applications. Some of these application areas are quite mature, while others are just emerging. An extensive bibliography is provided at the end of the book, which is used as a reference list for all chapters. This will help the interested readers to expand their study of this material.
Subband and Wavelet Transforms: Design and Applications is an in-depth reference volume, treating the fundamentals and discussing emerging applications in which filter banks and wavelets are believed to be important.
Audience: Intended for a broad readership, the book will be of particular interest to practicing engineers and scientists who wish to learn about utilization of these new developments, instructors teaching senior and graduate level engineering and applied mathematics courses in the field, and management personnel wishing to keep up with this rapidly developing technology.

Collected papers from scholars working in multirate signal processing and wavelets. Theory and design essays are presented, each with a unique perspective. Features a technical overview of filter banks and transforms, fundamentals, matrix theory and using time domain equations, time-frequency localization, continuous wave transform (CWT) ranging from one to three dimensions. Following are seven essays on applications ranging from the established to the emerging: subband image coding and video coding, audio coding with filter banks, spread spectrum systems, multitone modulations, and more. 36 page bibliography. A solid reference work, plus valuable observations on the new developments.

Editorial Reviews

A reference on multirate signal processing and wavelets, compiling the fundamentals and surveying both mature and emerging applications. Theory and design are approached from such perspectives as matrix theory for filter bank analysis, the continuous wavelet transform, and time-frequency localization. Among the applications described are image and video coding, acoustic echo cancellation, analog scramblers, and multitone modulation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
