Recently there has been intense research activity on the subject of wavelet/subband theory and application. Experts in such diverse fields as mathematics, physics, electrical engineering and image processing have provided original and pioneering works and results. But this diversity, while rich and productive, has lead to a sense of fragmentation, especially to those new to the field, and nonspecialists, trying to understand the connections between the different aspects of wavelet and subband theory.

The book is designed to present an understanding of wavelets and their development from a continuous-domain transformation to a frame representation and finally to multiresolution analysis tools such as subband decomposition. The book presents a theoretical understanding of the subject that is intertwined with practical examples and practical applications of wavelets in ultrasonic and biomedical applications. There is special emphasis on applications in communications and compression as well as image processing.

Topics and Features:

* Provides an understanding of the link between continuous wavelet transform, the fast wavelet transform and subband decomposition.

* Algorithms and numerical examples are implemented in Matlab.

* The design of wavelet bases, and how to implement the transform both in hardware and software is discussed in detail.

* Covers the fundamentals and the developments of the links between areas such as time-frequency analysis, digital signal processing, image processing and Fourier and wavelet transform, both continuous and discrete.

Extended mathematical treatment and numerous examples, with particular emphasis to the transition from the continuous domain to multiresolution and subband. The book is an essential text/reference for graduates, researchers, and professionals in electrical engineering, communications engineering and computer engineering. Practitioners and professionals engaged in signal processing, wavelets and Fourier analysis will find the book a useful resource and comprehensive guide.
