"The discussions of applications avoid the deep jargon of signal processing … accessible to a wider audience." (Book News, December 2009)
Through expansive coverage and easy-to-follow explanations, A First Course in Wavelets with Fourier Analysis, Second Edition provides a self-contained mathematical treatment of Fourier analysis and wavelets, while uniquely presenting signal analysis applications and problems. Essential and fundamental ideas are presented in an effort to make the book accessible to a broad audience, and, in addition, their applications to signal processing are kept at an elementary level.
The book begins with an introduction to vector spaces, inner product spaces, and other preliminary topics in analysis. Subsequent chapters feature:
The development of a Fourier series, Fourier transform, and discrete Fourier analysis
Improved sections devoted to continuous wavelets and two-dimensional wavelets
The analysis of Haar, Shannon, and linear spline wavelets
The general theory of multi-resolution analysis
Updated MATLAB code and expanded applications to signal processing
The construction, smoothness, and computation of Daubechies' wavelets
Advanced topics such as wavelets in higher dimensions, decomposition and reconstruction, and wavelet transform
Applications to signal processing are provided throughout the book, most involving the filtering and compression of signals from audio or video. Some of these applications are presented first in the context of Fourier analysis and are later explored in the chapters on wavelets. New exercises introduce additional applications, and complete proofs accompany the discussion of each presented theory. Extensive appendices outline more advanced proofs and partial solutions to exercises as well as updated MATLAB routines that supplement the presented examples.
A First Course in Wavelets with Fourier Analysis, Second Edition is an excellent book for courses in mathematics and engineering at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also a valuable resource for mathematicians, signal processing engineers, and scientists who wish to learn about wavelet theory and Fourier analysis on an elementary level.
Best book to learn from. I'm disappointed about the lack of discussion of Haar and Gabor wavelets, both of which found considerable application in engineering.Published 2 months ago by Kevin Blankinship
the condition of the textbook was excellent. As expected, the book the one i needed and ordered. A satisfied customerPublished 9 months ago by Vishesh
Have seen all 5 star reviews above, I picked up this book from school's library.
After skim through it, I don't think I can finish it. Read more
