Wavelets with composite dilations
A wavelet with composite dilations is a function generating an orthonormal basis or a Parseval frame for L2(ℝn) under the action of lattice translations and dilations by products of elements drawn from non-commuting matrix sets A and B. Typically, the members of B are shear matrices (all eigenvalues are one), while the members of A are matrices expanding or contracting on a proper subspace of ℝn. These wavelets are of interest in applications because of their tendency to produce “long, narrow” window functions well suited to edge detection. In this paper, we discuss the remarkable extent to which the theory of wavelets with composite dilations parallels the theory of classical wavelets, and present several examples of such systems.
