Description

Wavelet theory is on the boundary between mathematics and engineering, making it ideal for demonstrating to students that mathematics research is thriving in the modern day. Students can see non-trivial mathematics ideas leading to natural and important applications, such as video compression and the numerical solution of differential equations. The only prerequisites assumed are a basic linear algebra background and a bit of analysis background. Intended to be as elementary an introduction to wavelet theory as possible, the text does not claim to be a thorough or authoritative reference on wavelet theory.
