Wavelet analysis has undergone an explosive growth in the past few
years, = with many successes in the efficient analysis, processing,
and compression of signals and images. It is based on the idea of
time-scale decomposition of signals and images, which is fundamentally
different from the traditional frequency and time-frequency
decompositions. Unfortunately, many potential users of this new
technique are hindered by the inaccessibility of its mathematical
framework, partly due to its novelty. The objectives of this course
are as follows:

a) To give a practical introduction to space-time-scale analysis in
one an= d two dimensions, and show that it may be regarded as a
wideband generalizat= ion of the usual time-frequency analysis.

b) To develop space-time-scale analyses specifically dedicated to
acoustic and electromagnetic waves, and apply them to sonar and

Each participant will receive a copy of Dr. Kaiser's textbook "A
Friendly Guide to Wavelets," as well as a newly updated 235-page
packet of typeset lecture notes with many graphical examples. For a
description and reviews of the textbook, please visit the author's
website at


Dr. Gerald Kaiser heads the Virginia Center for Signals and Waves. He
has = a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and
a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Toronto. His research
has concentrated= on developing a theory of acoustic and
electromagnetic wavelets with applications to sonar and radar. He has
published many papers on mathemati= cs, physics and signal processing,
as well as two books: Quantum Physics, Relativity, and Complex
Spacetime and A Friendly Guide to Wavelets, (Birkhauser, 1994).
