Subject: Course: Wavelet Course at UMass Lowell
|Course: Wavelet Course at UMass Lowell
Further Information on Wavelet Course at UMass Lowell:
TIME & PLACE: Wed6-9PM in Olsen 306, Jan. 18 to May 3,1995.
INSTRUCTOR: Gerald Kaiser, Dept. of Math. Sciences.
PLACE: 306 Olsen Bg., North Campus, UMass Lowell.
TEXTBOOK: G. Kaiser, A Friendly Guide to Wavelets,
Birkhauser, 1994, $34.50.
Prerequisites: : Matrix theory, Fourier series, and Fourier
integraltransforms. Some experience with Fourier analysis
(aspracticed, for example by signal analysts) would help, but is
notnecessary. All the necessary mathematics are developed in
thefirst chapter of the book, which will be covered thoroughly,with
emphasis on intuition rather than rigor. (If you are not sure
aboutthe level, you could order the book by calling 800-777-4643
before deciding.) I have taught similar courses for the past five
years to researchers from local industry and graduate students in
The coverage will consist mainly of Part I of the book,
BASIC WAVELET ANALYSIS:
Mathematical background and notation
Continuous and discrete time-frequency analysis
Continuous and discrete time-scale (wavelet) analysis
frames and generalized frames
Multiresolution analysis and subband filtering
Orthonormal (Daubechies) wavelet bases
If time permits and there is sufficient interest, there will also be a
brief introduction to Part II of the book, PHYSICAL WAVELETS:
Electromagnetic and acoustic wavelets
Applications to radar, sonar, and scattering.
Official registration is in January. Call the graduate school office at
(508) 934-2380 for information. If you cannot make a special trip
to register, just show up in class (after checking with me by email)
and I'll give you some material that you can fill out to register by
