This collection of independent case studies demonstrates how
wavelet techniques have been used to solve open problems and
develop insight into the nature of the systems under study. Each
case begins with a description of the problem and points to the
specific properties of wavelets and techniques used for
determining a solution.

The cases vary from a very simple wavelet-based technique to
reduce noise in data to work conducted at the Earthquake Research
Institute in Japan. One case study shows how wavelet analysis is
used in the development of a Japanese text-to-speech system for
personal computers and another presents new wavelet techniques
developed for and applied to the study of atmospheric wind,
turbulent fluid, and seismic acceleration data.

Although calculus and some junior and senior mathematics courses
for scientists and engineers will suffice, a solid background in
undergraduate mathematics, particularly analysis and numerical
analysis, and some familiarity with the basics of wavelets are
helpful for reading this book.
