OVERVIEWWavelet A small waveWavelet Transforms Convert a signal into a series of wavelets Provide a way for analyzing waveforms, bounded in bothfrequency and duration Allow signals to be stored more efficiently than by Fouriertransform Be able to better approximate real-world signals Well-suited for approximating data with sharp discontinuities“The Forest & the Trees” Notice gross features with a large "window“ Notice small features with a small "window”

DEVELOPMENT IN HISTORYPre-1930 Joseph Fourier (1807) with his theories of frequencyanalysisThe 1930s Using scale-varying basis functions; computing the energyof a function1960-1980 Guido Weiss and Ronald R. Coifman; Grossman and MorletPost-1980 Stephane Mallat; Y. Meyer; Ingrid Daubechies; waveletapplications today

PRE-1930Fourier Synthesis Main branch leading to wavelets By Joseph Fourier (born in France,1768-1830) with frequency analysistheories (1807)From the Notion of FrequencyAnalysis to Scale Analysis Analyzing f(x) by creatingmathematical structures that vary inscaleFor any 2π periodical function f ( x ) :f ( x ) a0 The first mention of wavelets appearedin an appendix to the thesis of A. Haar(1909) With compact support, vanishesoutside of a finite interval Not continuously differentiablek 1(ak cos kx bk sin kx )1 2πf ( x )dx2π 01 2πak f ( x ) cos(kx )dxa0 Construct a function, shift it by someπamount, change its scale, apply thatstructure in approximating a signal1Repeat the procedure. Take that basic bk πstructure, shift it, and scale it again.Apply it to the same signal to get a newapproximationHaar Wavelet 02π0f ( x )sin (kx )dx

THE 1930sFinding by the 1930s Physicist Paul Levy Haar basis function is superior to the Fourierbasis functions for studying small complicateddetails in the Brownian motionEnergy of a Function by Littlewood, Paley,and Stein Different results were produced if the energywas concentrated around a few points ordistributed over a larger interval1Energy 22π02f ( x ) dx

1960-1980Created a Simplest Elements of a Function Space,Called Atoms By the mathematicians Guido Weiss and Ronald R.Coifman With the goal of finding the atoms for a common functionUsing Wavelets for Numerical Image Processing David Marr developed an effective algorithm using afunction varying in scale in the early 1980sDefined Wavelets in the Context of QuantumPhysics By Grossman and Morlet in 1980

POST-1980An Additional Jump-start By Mallat In 1985, Stephane Mallat discovered somerelationships between quadrature mirror filters,pyramid algorithms, and orthonormal waveletbasesY. Meyer’s First Non-trivial Wavelets Be continuously differentiable Do not have compact supportIngrid Daubechies’ Orthonormal BasisFunctions Based on Mallat's work Perhaps the most elegant, and the cornerstone ofwavelet applications today

MATHEMATICALTRANSFORMATIONWhy To obtain a further information from the signalthat is not readily available in the raw signal.Raw Signal Normally the time-domain signalProcessed Signal A signal that has been "transformed" by any of theavailable mathematical transformationsFourier Transformation The most popular transformation

FREQUENCY TRANSFORMSWhy Frequency Information is Needed Be able to see any information that is notobvious in time-domainTypes of Frequency Transformation Fourier Transform, Hilbert Transform, Shorttime Fourier Transform, WignerDistributions, the Radon Transform, theWavelet Transform

FREQUENCY ANALYSISFrequency Spectrum Be basically the frequency components (spectralcomponents) of that signal Show what frequencies exists in the signalFourier Transform (FT) One way to find the frequency content Tells how much of each frequency exists in a signalX (k 1 ) 1x (n 1) NwN eN 1n 0N 1k 02π jNx (n 1 ) WX (k 1) WknN knN X(f ) x(t ) x(t ) e 2 jπft dt X ( f ) e 2 jπft df

NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESSFT Only Gives what Frequency ComponentsExist in the SignalThe Time and Frequency Information cannot be Seen at the Same TimeTime-frequency Representation of theSignal is NeededMost of Transportation Signals are Non-stationary.(We need to know whether and also when an incident was happened.)ONE EARLIER SOLUTION: SHORT-TIME FOURIER TRANSFORM (STFT)

SFORT TIME FOURIERTRANSFORM (STFT)Dennis Gabor (1946) Used STFT To analyze only a small section of the signal at atime -- a technique called Windowing the Signal.The Segment of Signal is Assumed StationaryA 3D transform[x(t ) ω (t t′)] eSTFTX(ω ) (t ′, f ) *t j 2 πftdtω(t ) : the window functionA function of timeand frequency

DRAWBACKS OF STFTUnchanged WindowDilemma of Resolution Narrow window - poor frequency resolution Wide window - poor time resolutionHeisenberg Uncertainty Principle Cannot know what frequency exists at what time intervalsVia Narrow WindowThe two figures were from Robi Poliker, 1994Via Wide Window

MULTIRESOLUTION ANALYSIS(MRA)Wavelet Transform An alternative approach to the short time Fouriertransform to overcome the resolution problem Similar to STFT: signal is multiplied with a functionMultiresolution Analysis Analyze the signal at different frequencies with differentresolutions Good time resolution and poor frequency resolution at highfrequencies Good frequency resolution and poor time resolution at lowfrequencies More suitable for short duration of higher frequency; andlonger duration of lower frequency components

COMPUTATION OF CWTCWT xψ (τ, s ) Ψ xψ (τ, s ) 1sx (t ) ψ *t τdtsStep 1: The wavelet is placed at the beginning of thesignal, and set s 1 (the most compressed wavelet);Step 2: The wavelet function at scale “1” ismultiplied by the signal, and integrated over alltimes; then multiplied by 1 s ;Step 3: Shift the wavelet to t τ , and get thetransform value at t τ and s 1;Step 4: Repeat the procedure until the waveletreaches the end of the signal;Step 5: Scale s is increased by a sufficiently smallvalue, the above procedure is repeated for all s;Step 6: Each computation for a given s fills thesingle row of the time-scale plane;Step 7: CWT is obtained if all s are calculated.

DETECTING SELF-SIMILARITYPurpose How analysis by waveletscan detect a self-similar,or fractal, signal. The signal here is theKoch curve -- a syntheticsignal that is builtrecursivelyAnalysis If a signal is similar toitself at different scales,then the "resemblanceindex" or waveletcoefficients also will besimilar at different scales. In the coefficients plot,which shows scale on thevertical axis, this selfsimilarity generates acharacteristic pattern.

COMPRESSING IMAGESFingerprints FBI maintains a large databaseof fingerprints — about 30million sets of them. The cost of storing all this dataruns to hundreds of millions ofdollars.Results Values under the threshold areforced to zero, achieving about42% zeros while retainingalmost all (99.96%) the energyof the original image. By turning to wavelets, the FBIhas achieved a 15:1compression ratio better than the more traditionalJPEG compression

IDENTIFYING PUREFREQUENCIESPurpose Resolving a signal into constituentsinusoids of different frequencies The signal is a sum of three puresine wavesAnalysis D1 contains signal componentswhose period is between 1 and 2. Zooming in on detail D1 revealsthat each "belly" is composed of 10oscillations. D3 and D4 contain the medium sinefrequencies. There is a breakdown betweenapproximations A3 and A4 - Themedium frequency been subtracted. Approximations A1 to A3 be used toestimate the medium sine. Zooming in on A1 reveals a periodof around 20.

wavelet transform combines both low pass and high pass fil-tering in spectral decomposition of signals. 1.2 Wavelet Packet and Wavelet Packet Tree Ideas of wavelet packet is the same as wavelet, the only differ-ence is that wavelet packet offers a more complex and flexible analysis because in wavelet packet analysis the details as well

The wavelet analysis procedure is to adopt a wavelet prototype function, called an analyzing wavelet or mother wavelet. Temporal analysis is performed with a contracted, high-frequency version of the prototype wavelet, while frequency analysis is performed with a dilated, low-frequency version of the same wavelet.

Wavelet analysis can be performed in several ways, a continuous wavelet transform, a dis-cretized continuous wavelet transform and a true discrete wavelet transform. The application of wavelet analysis becomes more widely spread as the analysis technique becomes more generally known.
