#1 Preprint: Thresholding Multiwavelets

Title: The Discrete Multiple Wavelet Transform
and Thresholding Methods

Authors: T.R.Downie & B.W.Silverman

Abstract: Orthogonal wavelet bases have recently been developed using
multiple mother wavelet functions. Applying the discrete multiple
wavelet transform requires the input data to be preprocessed to obtain
a more economical decomposition. We discuss the properties of
several preprocessing methods and their effect on the thresholding
results. We propose a multivariate thresholding method for
multiwavelets where each wavelet coefficient vector is thresholded as
opposed to each element. A multiwavelet universal threshold is
obtained using the asymptotic behaviour of the $chi ^2$
distribution. A simulation study demonstrates that when using the
Geronimo multiwavelet with an appropriate preprocessing method and
bivariate thresholding, better results are obtained compared with
using Daubechies wavelets.
