Abstract: Let C denote the complex numbers and L denote the ring of
complexvalued Laurent polynomial functions on C {0}. Furthermore,
we denote by _R, L_N the subsets of Laurent polynomials whose
restriction to the unit circle is real, nonnegative, respectively. We
prove that for any two Laurent polynomials P_1, P_2 in L_N, which have
no common zeros in C {0}, there exists a pair of Laurent polynomials
Q_1, Q_2 in L_N satisfying the equation Q_1 P_1 + Q_2 P_2 = 1. We
provide some information about the minimal length Laurent polynomials
Q_1 and Q_2 with these properties and describe an algorithm to compute
them. We apply this result to design a conjugate quadrature filter
whose zeros contain an arbitrary finite subset Lambda of C {0} with
the propertythat for any x, y in Lambda, x not equal to y implies x is
not equal to either y or 1/(conjugate y).

Abstract: Conjugate quadrature filters with multiple zeros at 1 have
classical applications to unitary subband coding of signals using
exact reconstruction filter banks. Recent work shows how to construct,
given a set of n negative numbers, a CQF whose degree does not exceed
2n1 and whose zeros contain the specified negative numbers, and
applies such filters to interpolatory subdivision and to wavelet
construction in Sobelov spaces. This paper describes a recent result
of the authors which extends this construction for an arbitrary set of
n nonzero complex numbers that contains no negative or negative
reciprocal conjugate pairs. Detailed derivations are to be given
elsewhere. We design several filters using an exchange algorithm to
illustrate a conjecture concerning the minimal degree and we discuss
an application to coding transient acoustic signals.

Abstract: A necessary and sufficient condition on the spectrum of the
restricted transition operator is given for the convergence in
$L^2(R^d)$ of the multidimensional cascade algorithm for any starting
function $phi_0$ whose shifts form a partition of unity.

Abstract: This paper characterizes the stability and orthonormality of
the shifts of a multidimensional $(M,c)$ refinable function $phi$ in
terms of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the transition operator
$W_{c_{au}}$ defined by the autocorrelation $c_{au}$ of its refinement
mask $c, $ where $M$ is an arbitrary dilation matrix. Another
consequence is that if the shifts of $phi$ form a Riesz basis, then
$W_{c_{au}}$ has a unique eigenvector of eigenvalue $1 ,$ and all its
other eigenvalues lie inside the unit circle. The general theory is
applied to twodimensional nonseparable $(M,c)$ refinable functions
whose masks are constructed from Daubechies' conjugate quadrature
filters.
