Over the past few years, wavelets and their discrete-time cousins,
filter banks, or, subband coding have been used in a variety of signal
processing applications. From work in harmonic analysis and
mathematical physics, and applications such as speech, image
compression and computer vision, different disciplines have built up
methods and tools now cast in the common framework of wavelets.

Offering a unified view of this exciting field, Wavelets and Subband
Coding develops the theory in both continuous and discrete time, and
presents important applications.

Chapter 1 gives an overview of the topics covered and introduces the
concept of multiresolution that is central in both theory and

Chapter 2 is a review of fundamentals that makes the book
self-contained, and it includes discussions of vector spaces, Fourier
theory, signal processing and time-frequency analysis.

Chapter 3 develops discrete-time linear expansions based on filter
banks or subband coding. The two-channel case is studied in
detail. The multichannel case as well as transmultiplexers are
developed and design examples are given.

Chapter 4 develops wavelets, both with direct approaches and based on
filter banks, and describes wavelet series and their computation, as
well as the construction of modified local Fourier transforms.

Chapter 5 discusses continuous wavelet and local Fourier transforms
that are used in signal analysis, as well as discretized versions
leading to frames.

Chapter 6 addresses efficient algorithms for filter banks and wavelet

Chapter 7 concludes coverage by describing signal compression where
filter banks and wavelets play important roles, including speech,
audio, image and video compression. Source coding using transforms,
quantization, and entropy coding are studied in detail, and the
usefulness of multiresolution coding in current applications is

In addition, each chapter includes numerous illustrative examples and
several appendices cover additional material. The book includes about
a hundred homework problems, and contains 130 illustrations and photographs.
