Fundamental Papers in Wavelet Theory
This book traces the development of modern wavelet theory by collecting many of the fundamental papers in signal processing, physics and mathematics stimulating the rise of wavelet theory, together with many important papers from its further development. These papers were published in a variety of journals from different disciplines, making it difficult to obtain a complete view of wavelet theory and its origin. Additionally, some of the most significant papers have been available only in French or German. Heil and Walmut bring together these documents into a book allowing the reader a complete view of the origins and development of wavelet theory. The volume is an excellent book and a first-class reference for the history of wavelets. By collecting all these various papers together in one volume, the editors and the publisher are offering a wonderful gift to graduate students as well as to researchers in engineering and mathematics.
