Description
A comprehensive, selfcontained treatment of Fourier analysis and wavelets—now in a new edition
Through expansive coverage and easytofollow explanations, A First Course in Wavelets with Fourier Analysis, Second Edition provides a selfcontained 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 twodimensional wavelets

The analysis of Haar, Shannon, and linear spline wavelets

The general theory of multiresolution 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 upperundergraduate 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.
