# MA304: Topics in Applied Mathematics

Unit 6: Wavelet Methods   This final unit is concerned with the study of multi-scale data analysis.  This unit will introduce you to the notions of multiresolution analysis (MRA) and wavelet transform (WT) as well as the associated wavelet decomposition and reconstruction algorithms.  The WT of a finite Fourier series is discussed to introduce the relationship between scale and frequency, in particular with a group of frequencies, called a frequency band.  We will also derive the inversion formula for recovering the function from its WT.  The MRA architecture is demonstrated by using B-spline functions.  Construction of wavelets by appealing to the MRA is achieved by matrix extension.  To reduce the computational complexity of the wavelet decomposition and reconstruction algorithms, you will also study lifting schemes.  To extend to the wavelet transform of functions of two variables, we use tensor-products of the wavelets with the corresponding scaling functions of the MRA.  This unit ends with embedding a digital image in the wavelet-domain for image manipulation, such as progressive transmission, image edge extraction, and image enhancement.

Unit6 Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this unit, the student will be able to:
- Give the relationship between scale and frequency for a given wavelet filter. - Perform matrix extension to compute wavelet filters. - Compute multi-scale data representation by applying the wavelet decomposition algorithm for the Haar wavelet. - Identify the order of vanishing moments of a given wavelet.
