Considerable attention from the international scientific community is currently focused on the wide ranging applications of wavelets. For the first time, the field's leading experts have come together to produce a complete guide to wavelet transform applications in medicine and biology. Wavelets in Medicine and Biology provides accessible, detailed, and comprehensive guidelines for all those interested in learning about wavelets and their applications to biomedical problems.

Covers statistical analysis of image differences by wavelet decomposition, local tomography, etc.

    Mathematics in the sciences.

    The traffic of tools and ideas between mathematics on the one side, and the aplied sciences and engineering, on the other, is a win-win-proposition;-- and this lovely book is a great testament to the benefit to medicine and biology from taking this seriously. Imaging, X-ray, tomography, multiscale analysis, and frequency subband filtering are now making their mark. The striking sucess, and the impact of the mathematical ideas, rely on having great books, like the present one, around. The public benefits from this;-- and mathematics does as well, twofold,--both from the inspiration, and from the ideas that are dictated from applications.
