The wavelet transform has become a cutting-edge technology in image
compression research. This article explains what wavelets are and
provides a practical, nuts-and-bolts tutorial on wavelet-based
compression that will help readers to understand and experiment with
this important new technology.

To appear in Multimedia Systems, Vol. 2, No. 3

The tutorial directory contains two Unix compress'ed postscript files:
"" and "". The text and all figures except
Figure 8 are in Depending on the speed of your printer,
