#14 Meeting: Wavelet Workshop Dec 16-18 in Houston


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

Wednesday-Thursday-Friday **December 16-17-18, 1998**
at the University of Houston

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

Wellesley-Cambridge Press, Box 812060, Wellesley MA 02482

This text is already in class use in many EE and mathematics departments.
It can be ordered directly 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.
The Workshop covers four broad topics:

1. Analysis of Filter Banks and Wavelets
2. Design Methods
**3. Applications (from Lecturers and Participants)
*** This workshop will have a specific discussion of
Wavelets in Geophysics
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
Medical Imaging and Scientific Visualization
Image Compression / Image Segmentation / Image Enhancement
Video Compression
** Deblocking algorithm for JPEG (DCT) Compression
** Deringing algorithm for wavelet-based compression
** Wavelets vs. Fourier Methods in Geophysics

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, 1997, and June 1998 (San Jose, Tampa, San Diego, Fairfax
and Wellesley Workshops). Tuition is reduced by 50% for graduate students.
We are very glad to answer all questions by email. Our Web sites are

Gilbert Strang Room 2-240 MIT Cambridge MA 02139
