#19 Question: How to synthesize a function for samples.

Dear Waveleters;

My research is on the generating a smooth function for a finite
number of samples. Wavelet Packet has been chosen. To get rid of the
boundary effects, I also assume the periodic boundary condition on the
signals.The WaveLab's functions are used for all the
computations. Here is the procedure.

1- f(x)=sin(x) is the prototype function and the number of samples
is taken as 128.

2- Packet tree has been constructed and the best packets are picked
by shannon entropy criteria.The best coefficients are shown as

3- For each of the selected packets, their basis functions are
computed.Basis function W(j,k,l) at j-th scale,k-th packet and l-th
position can be constructed simply by putting value ONE at the
position(j,k,l), setting all the other packet tree to zero.Then the
function is synthesized by the reconstruction method. The support of
W(j,k,l) is [2^j*l 2^j*l+(2*N-1)*2^j] where 2*N is the length of

4- The sin(x) can be expressed as SUM(W(j,k,l)*Coeff(j,k,l)).
I have tried Daubechies filters with different orders. But I can't
reproduce the original function,f(x)=sin(x). The results are completely
wrong. Do I miss something important here? Should I use other steps like
data preconditioning or postconditioning?
Is there anybody who can give me ideas how to get rid of this
problem? I'll really appreciate any idea and suggestion in this regard.
