#20 Answer: Methods to avoid shift variance of WT ? (WD 6.8 #25)


I have (perhaps correctly) been harassed for my breivety in answering
a previous question on shift invariance for wavelet transforms. Part
of my reason was that the majority of work I mensioned in my posting
could be found be searching the wavelet digest pages or the internet.
By way of explanation, I do not keep a detailed reference list on all
topics but feel that, if I know some theoretical issues and can pass
on the relevant keywords and search pointers then that may be of use
to the average researcher? However in acknowlegement of my previous
tersness, here is a follow up which will (hopefully) make my
(previous) answer more complete.

Besides Daubechies book, the following talks about shift invariant

Some good references in the context of pattern recognition:
