### Dimensionality reduction between discrete wavelet families

I have what it may be a ridiculous question (since I don't know much about wavelets), but here I go. I am using different Discrete Wavelet families to extract texture features from images. I plan to ...

### Numerical evaluation of Fourier transform of a scaling function

Given a set of filter taps $\{h_n\}_{n=0}^{m-1}$, define a scaling function $\phi$ by $$\phi(x) = \sqrt{2}\sum_{n} h_n \phi(2x-n).$$ In keeping with the notation from Daubechies "Ten Lectures on ...

### Wrong Boundary Conditions Result Using Wavelet Collocation

I have a functional $S$, $$S = \int_{x_0}^{x_b} dx \frac{1}{z(x)^d} \sqrt{1 + \frac{z'(x)^2}{f(z)}}, \qquad f(z) = 1-\left(\frac{z(x)}{z_h}\right)^{d+1}$$ where $d=3$ is the dimension and $z_h$ is ...

### Can Mallat's pyramidal algorithm be extended to non-power of 2 input sizes?

Mallat's pyramidal algorithm for the discrete wavelet transform operates on power-of-2 vector lengths. Can it be extended to work on inputs of any size without resorting to zero padding?

### What is the difference between the curl component, and the divergence-free component, of a vector field?

The term divergence-free sounds more general and appears particularly in wavelet-related approaches to the Navier-Stokes equations. However I have yet to find a discussion focusing on the distinction, ...

### Reduction of linear system with decaying unknown

I have a linear system of equations $Ax = b$ where the number of unknowns $N$ is intractably large but the right-hand side has only small support and the unknown $x$ is known to decay exponentially. I ...

### How to compute the wavelet approximation of a function?

For the function $f(x)=x$, how to compute the wavelet approximation using Haar basis? I'm new to wavelet, I'm looking for a package which will do something like this ... ### Wavelets frame for $L^2[0,\infty)$
I need a wavelet frame for $L^2[0,\infty)$. Moreover, the wavelet should be twice differentiable and with continuous second order derivatives. Hopefully, the wavelet should have compact support (...
