The Illustrated Wavelet Transform Handbook: Introductory Theory and Applications in Science, Engineering, Medicine and Finance

Front Cover
CRC Press, Jul 15, 2002 - Science - 368 pages
The Illustrated Wavelet Transform Handbook: Introductory Theory and Applications in Science, Engineering, Medicine and Finance provides an overview of the theory and practical applications of wavelet transform methods. The author uses several hundred illustrations, some in color, to convey mathematical concepts and the results of applications.

The first chapter presents a brief overview of the wavelet transform, including a short history. The remainder of the book is split into two parts: the first part discusses the mathematics of both discrete and continuous wavelet transforms while the second part deals with applications in a variety of subject areas, such as geophysics, medicine, fluid turbulence, engineering testing, speech and sound analysis, image analysis, and data compression. These application chapters make the reader aware of the similarities that exist in the use of wavelet transform analysis across disciplines. A comprehensive list of more than 700 references provides a valuable resource for further study.

The book is designed specifically for the applied reader in science, engineering, medicine, finance, or any other of the growing number of application areas. Newcomers to the subject will find an accessible and clear account of the theory of continuous and discrete wavelet transforms, providing a large number of examples of their use across a wide range of disciplines. Readers already acquainted with wavelets can use the book to broaden their perspective.

I picked up this book because I want to apply wavelets in my research and have found it to be an excellent introduction to wavelets for someone who comes in with general mathematical knowledge (calculus, etc.) but has never before been exposed to them. It provides just the right amount of mathematical rigor for someone who wants to understand what wavelets are, what they do, how to implement them in practice, while not bogging down the reader in a mire of math equations. The step by step approach and clear explanations make this book an enjoyable, easy read. Highly recommended for getting introduced to wavelets on a practical level.
