"It contains a wealth of information that should make it useful in signal processing and perhaps some other areas of engineering . . . I like the book as a possible text for a beginning graduate course in, say, mathematical methods in engineering. It covers a number of topics that are quite useful but are rarely covered in mainstream mathematics courses . . . a lot of the proofs are short and computational, which is necessary in such a book that covers a large number of topics . . . it would serve as a good text, provided that the aim of the course is to present a variety of transforms useful in signal processing, as well as the wavelet transforms."
"The last two decades have produced tremendous developments in the mathematical theory of wavelets and their great variety of applications. Since wavelet analysis is a relatively new subject, this monograph is intended to be self-contained. The book is designed as a modern and authoritative guide to wavelets, wavelet transform, time-frequency signal analysis and related topics.
It is known that some research workers look upon wavelets as a new basis for representing functions, others consider them as a technique for time-frequency analysis and some others think of them as a new mathematical subject. All these approaches are gathered in this book, which presents an accessible, introductory survey of new wavelet analysis tools and the way they can be applied to fundamental analysis problems. We point out the clear, intuitive style of [the] presentation, and the numerous examples demonstrated through[out] the book illustrate how methods work in a step-by-step manner.
This way, the book becomes ideal for a broad audience including advanced undergraduate students, graduate[s] and professionals in signal processing. Also, the book provides the reader with a thorough mathematical background, and the wide variety of applications cover the interdisciplinary collaborative research in applied mathematics."
—Revue D’Analyse Numérique et de Théorie de L’ApproximationFrom the Publisher:
Wavelets allow complex information such as music, speech, images, and patterns to be decomposed into elementary forms-called the fundamental building blocks at different positions and scales-and, subsequently, reconstructed with high precision. With an increasedr demand for mathematical tools to provide both theory and applications for science and engineering, the utility and interest in wavelet analysis seem more clearly established than ever. Wavelet Transforms and Their Applications places a major emphasis on the logical development of fundamental ideas and systematic treatment of wavelet analysis and its applications to a wide variety of problems as encountered in various interdisciplinary areas. The book contains a large number of examples, which are either directly associated with applications or formulated in terms of the mathematical, physical, and engineering context in which theory arises. While other textbooks aim at a mathematically mature audience, this book is an introduction to wavelet transforms and accessible to a larger audience with diverse backgrounds and interests in mathematics, science, and engineering. Topics and Features: * Presents major developments in wavelets, wavelet transforms, Gabor transforms, the Wigner-Ville distribution, multiresolution analysis, harmonic wavelets, and their applications to time-frequency signal analysis and turbulence * Uses knowledge of Fourier transforms, some elementary ideas of Hilbert spaces, and orthonormal systems to develop the theory and applications of wavelet analysis * Offeres detailed and clear explanations of every concept and method, accompanied by carefully selected worked examples, with special emphasis given to those topics in which students typically experience difficulty * Includes carefully chosen end-of-chapter excercises and provides answers to selected exercises for additional help. Mathematicians, physicists, computer engineers, and electrical and mechanical engineers will find this book an exceptionally complete and accessible text and reference. It is also suitable as a self-study or reference guide for practitioners and professionals.
