Wavelets : A Student Guide, Paperback / softback Book


This text offers an excellent introduction to the mathematical theory of wavelets for senior undergraduate students.

Despite the fact that this theory is intrinsically advanced, the author's elementary approach makes it accessible at the undergraduate level.

Beginning with thorough accounts of inner product spaces and Hilbert spaces, the book then shifts its focus to wavelets specifically, starting with the Haar wavelet, broadening to wavelets in general, and culminating in the construction of the Daubechies wavelets.

All of this is done using only elementary methods, bypassing the use of the Fourier integral transform.

Arguments using the Fourier transform are introduced in the final chapter, and this less elementary approach is used to outline a second and quite different construction of the Daubechies wavelets.

The main text of the book is supplemented by more than 200 exercises ranging in difficulty and complexity.
