The emphasis in this volume, based on an intensive course on Wavelets given at
CWI, Amsterdam, is on the affine case.
The first part presents a concise introduction of the underlying theory to
the uninitiated reader.
The second part gives applications in various areas. Some of the contributions
here are a fresh exposition of earlier work by others, while other papers
contain new results by the authors. The areas are so diverse as
seismic processing, quadrature formulae, and wavelet bases adapted to
