Book: Wavelets and Filter Banks (Strang & Nguyen)

WAVELETS AND FILTER BANKS Gilbert Strang and Truong Nguyen

Publication 1/96 by Wellesley-Cambridge Press

This new textbook by Gilbert Strang and Truong Nguyen offers a clear
and easy-to-understand introduction to two central ideas -- filter
banks for discrete signals, and wavelets. The connections are fully
explained -- the wavelet is determined by a choice of filter
coefficients. All important wavelet properties (orthogonality or
biorthogonality, symmetry, accuracy of approximation, and smoothness)
come from specific properties of the filters. The text shows how to
construct those filters and wavelets. We emphasize the usefulness of
linear algebra.

The applications are very widespread -- and they continue to develop
rapidly. The book gives a direct approach to signal processing and
image processing through filter banks that iterate on the lowpass
filter (this is the wavelet idea). Blocking and ringing artifacts are
analyzed, along with many MATLAB applications. Wavelets and Filter
Banks is written for the very broad audience that uses these ideas:

Digital Signal Processing and Speech Processing
Image Processing including Medical Imaging
Scientific and Engineering Applications
Students and Professionals (wanting to understand wavelets!)
