Hello, Can anyone give a _very_ simple explanation / definition of what vanishing moments are in the field of wavelets please? I'm reading Hubbard's the World According to Wavelets and the book keeps using the phrase vanishing moments but annoyingly hasn't really introduced nor explained them. Thanks, Ben.

Hi all. In Real Analysis there is a theorem (Weierstrass'?) that any "reasonable" function can be approximated to arbitrary presicion by means of any linear basis for the function space, or |f(x) - sum_n=0^\inf g_n(x)| < eps where g_n(x) is the set of basis functions. This is "easy" to see/derive for basis functions like complex sinusiodals that have a finite magnitude for all x.

hi there, I tried to display the audio signal from WAV file, which is in real time domain. I have to identify the the noise position, it's time and how much is the amount of noise presented. For that I decided to transform those time domain signals into frequency domain signals with the help of DWT, since I want to know the position and level of noise wrt. milliseconds. I tried to implement it...

What is the best/easiest method to determine the main frequency of the input audio signal? I am confused by some options (FFT, wavelets) and I am just looking for a simple one which doesn't have to be too much theory, but simply works.

Lately I have read a number of articles that use multiscale analysis (wavelets) to decompose the signal into different frequency bands. On each of the scales, invariant measures such as correlation dimension and largest Lyapunov exponents are estimated (via Takens delay embedding theorem). My questions are: Since linear filters are generally not recommended as a preprocessing step before calculati...

Hi all, I've recently begun trying to understand the fundamentals of lossy image compression via transforms such as DCT and Wavelets (CDF9/7). In a paper I was reading it suggested that prior to applying a forward transform that a "reflection image" of the original image be created. This involves flipping the image vertically and horizontally and copy those flipped variants above, be...

Dear all. I am studying wavelets and multi-resolution analysis (MRA) at the moment.
