An Overview of Wavelet Based Multiresolution Analyses

Bjorn Jawerth and Wim Sweldens

In this paper we give an overview of some wavelet based multiresolution
analyses. First, we briefly discuss the continuous wavelet transform in
its simplest form. Then we give the definition of multiresolution analysis
and show how wavelets fit into it. We take a closer look at orthogonal,
biorthogonal and semiorthogonal wavelets.
The fast wavelet transform, wavelets on closed sets (boundary wavelets),
multidimensional wavelets and wavelet packets are discussed. Several
examples of wavelet families are given and compared. Finally, the essentials
of two major applications are outlined: data compression and compression
of linear operators.
