#7 Course: Wavelets and Filter Banks (Strang-Nguyen)


taught by Gilbert Strang (MIT) and Truong Nguyen (Boston University)

Wednesday-Thursday-Friday **May 20-21-22, 1998**

at Wellesley College ( a beautiful campus outside Boston )

TEXT: Participants will receive the new textbook (revised edition in 1997)

Wellesley-Cambridge Press, Box 812060, Wellesley MA 02181

This text is already in class use in many EE and mathematics departments.
It was chosen to accompany MATLAB's Wavelet Toolbox, which will be the
simulation software at the Wavelet Workshop. It can be ordered by email.

We also have a new IMAGE CODER by Truong Nguyen (1997)

This will be used at the Workshop and will be provided to participants.

We will aim for the right balance of theory and applications. The text
gives an overall perspective of the field - which continues to grow
with amazing speed. The topics will include

1. Analysis of Filter Banks and Wavelets
2. Design Methods
**3. Applications (from Lecturers and Participants)
4. Hands-on Experience with Software (including image coding)

These four key areas will be developed in detail:

1. Analysis

Multirate Signal Processing: Filtering, Decimation, Polyphase
Perfect Reconstruction and Aliasing Removal
Matrix Analysis: Toeplitz Matrices and Fast Algorithms
Wavelet Transform: Pyramid and Cascade Algorithms
Daubechies Wavelets, Orthogonal and Biorthogonal Wavelets
Smoothness, Approximation, Boundary Filters and Wavelets
Time-Frequency and Time-Scale Analysis

2. Design Methods

Spectral Factorization
Cosine-Modulated Filter Banks
Eigenfilters and Quadratic Constrained Least Squares
Lattice Structure
The Lifting Method (Ladder Structure)

3. Applications

Audio and Image Compression, Quantization Effects
Transient Detection and Edge Detection
Digital Communication and Multicarrier Modulation
Text-Image Compression: Lossy and Lossless
Medical Imaging and Scientific Visualization
Image Compression / Image Segmentation / Image Enhancement
Video Compression

4. Simulation Software

MATLAB Wavelet Toolbox
ECG Compression

The goal of the Workshop is to be as useful as possible to all
participants. ** Please request information by an email message
with subject Workshop to the organizer

Gilbert Strang:

We will reply about the program and tuition cost and housing.
The tuition includes the textbook and software. It will be the same as
in 1995, 1996, and 1997 (San Jose, Tampa, San Diego, and Fairfax Workshops).
It is reduced by 50% for graduate students. We are very glad to
answer all questions by email. Our Web sites are
