Submitted by Information Brigitte Forsterbrigitte.firstname.lastname@example.org Title Wavelets and Operators Author(s) Yves Meyer Publication date Jul 01 1993 Publisher Cambridge University Press ISBN 0521420008 Number of pages 223 Summary Yves Meyer stands the theory of wavelets firmly upon solid ground by basing his book on the fundamental work of Calderon, Zygmund and their collaborators. Link Comments Over the last two years, wavelet methods have shown themselves to be of considerable use to harmonic analysts and, in particular, advances have been made concerning their applications. The strength of wavelet methods lies in their ability to describe local phenomena more accurately than a traditional expansion in sines and cosines can. Thus, wavelets are ideal in many fields where an approach to transient behaviour is needed, for example, in considering acoustic or seismic signals, or in image processing. Yves Meyer stands the theory of wavelets firmly upon solid ground by basing his book on the fundamental work of Calderon, Zygmund and their collaborators. For anyone who would like an introduction to wavelets, this book will prove to be a necessary purchase.
