    1-0 out of 5 stars Lost in Chapter 5
    I bought this book with a great enthusiasm and hope to learn something about filter banks. Soon after I started to read it I figured that the book has a great deal of inconsistencies. To begin with the notation is awkward, and the dimensions of the vectors and matrices are often infinite! Clearly implying that the authors are not very practical after all... Chapter 4 on filter banks is more or less OK, with mentioning of many types and choices for filter designs but nothing deep and concrete (In Page 121 I couldn't find the reference "[VK]"). Chapter 5 is a disaster: Title of Section 5.2 should be "Orthogonal" instead of "Orthonormal", Page 148 says "presented below" but there are nothing "below", other mathematical proofs are sloppy and invalid. I recommend people interested in filter banks to read Vaidyanathan's book instead.

    1-0 out of 5 stars "overall a good text"!!! you gotta be kidding me
    I just can't believe these reviews: "overall a good text" - doh! I was unfortunate enough to take a course about wavelets for which the professor used this book as the main text (btw the course was offered by Prof. Truong Nguyen, and yes he is one of the authors). After 3 months of painful !struggle! with this book I was sure about only one thing: I could not learn anything about wavelets. First of all, there is no logical flow, as a matter of fact there is no flow of any kind. The authors just leap forward and backward leaving lots of unanswered questions, which is in my humble opinion, a very annoying thing that should not happen while using a text book. Clear statements about what the hell is going on are very rare. Most of the time you are left with vague statements which tell only part of the story. Right now I am in the third year of my ph.d and I am yet to meet an electrical engineer who thinks this book is actually useful in some sense. Don't waste your money on it. Start with "Wavelet and Wavelet Transforms" Burrus, once you get the feel of it check the books that math departments use for teaching wavelets.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Engaging style but not written for the unwashed.
    My first reaction to Professor Strang's superficially friendly, "just us folks", "you're gonna love this result" style was positive until I realized I wasn't absorbing anything.Could it be me?Well, yes, it is.I just am not a brilliant co-worker who can grasp Strang's giant leaps of intuition and say, "Wow, Gil, I see what you are saying, that really is neat!"This book is written in bursts of enthusiasm with little emphasis on details (like indices on summation operators) and little continuity.It appears to have a layered structure where Strang breezes through an introduction dropping all sorts of sophisticated concepts along with "don't worry, it will all become clear later".Unfortunately at the next layer Strang does not connect up with previous droppings but simply drops more.I am amazed that Matlab would attach this book to their wavelet toolbox, which by the way has a beautiful user's manual.An alternative to this book, "Wavelet and Wavelet Transforms" by Sidney Burrus and friends, is written in a clear step-by-step manner with attention to details (and with a reasonable step size).Upon reading Burrus's book I could go back to Strang's and figure out some of the things he was so pleased with (other than himself). ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Over rated
    There are so many well written books on Wavelts out nowadays. Don't waste your money on this one. It's famous because it was first (or one of the first). On the positive side, it does present a strong mathematical foundation. I recommend you buy a readable book (just do a search on Amazon.com and you'll find half a dozen great books on Wavelets), then when you approach the "expert" level, use this one a s a reference (if at all).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for everyone!
    This book has become a classic,-- and a hit;-- for more than ten reasons. It is multilayered, and yet presents a unity of ideas: The material, and the writing is engaging for the beginner, and for the research mathematician alike. When I used it in my teaching, it was equally popular with the math students, and those from engineering. I don't know if I can say this about any other book I have taught from. The students could follow all the carefully presented proofs, and the engineer could generate algorithms from the applied chapters.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart!
    This book is a treasure of details if you know what you are doing. As another reviewer noted, it is not for the beginner. But if you have had some experience with the subject this is a must have for your library shelf. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Engineering, CS, programming, math...
    There are few books that sucessfully cover the interface of diverse fields, and yet this lovely book represents a subject that thrives on the interconnections. It is a great textbook, and it works well for selfstudy. The two subjects wavelets and subband filtering [from signal processing] are quite different, and have distinct and independent lives, they have different aims, and different histories. And yet, it is the happy marriage of the two that enriches the the union to an extraordinary degree. Multiresolutions are the bread and butter of wavelet algorithms, and they thrive on methods from signal processing, the quadrature-mirror filter construction, for example. One reason some books in the subject miss the target is that most authors know one of the subjects well, but not the others. Diverse subjects have quite different languages, and different terminology. The present authors are indeed on target, and they know it all. They come from engineering, but they know all the math;--the connections are made. And they strike a balance: Engineers can find what they want for the practical problems, and the mathematicians will not be disappointed. Programmers can pick up what is needed in their world. The book has been tested in courses, including mine. If you pick it for a course, the authors have material on their web pages that serves as a wonderful supplement. Lovely!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Hurried, incomplete mathematical treatment and undefined
    The authors look hurried to catch the wave of wavelets and compiled hot topics of the publication date without almost any logical order. Lots of material taken from others' papers without generosity in the references. The book is missing to tell readers its purpose! Is it a mathematical treatment of wavelet transforms or an engineering book? I could not answer this question as a doctoral student. It's very much like a Ph.D. dissertation of the second author. Frankly, I was disappointed with the quality of the book from a known researcher like Prof. Vetterli.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Almost a great book
    One get's the feeling that this is the outline for the definitive book onwavelets.But the authors can't make up there minds whether the bookshould be mostly theoreticalor merely useful. A great deal of why andwhat - and not too much how to. Hopefully there will be another, moreinsightful edition. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece in wavelets
    This is a very well written book on the theory of wavelets and its applications. The presentation is self-contained and may serve as an introduction for someone who wants to learn about this topic. It also is an excellent book for those who have an advanced graduate degree in applied mathematics since it demonstrates how to truly understand complex concepts. This book gives a general presentation of some recent developments in wavelet theory with an emphasis on techniques that have a geometric and spectral-theoretic flavor. It can be certainly used as a textbook for graduate students as well as as a reference book for the specialists and researchers. A very nice feature of the book are the tutorials at the beginning of each chapter and some sections, which serve as summaries of main ideas and guides through the background ideas and motivation. At the end of every chapter there are plenty of excercises of various level of difficulty. Overall, this is a great book and I recommend it highly to a motivated reader.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Distinguished link between math and computer science
    This is an important mathematical reference written in excellent style.Wavelets have found applications in many areas of engineering and CS.The authors provide a detailed, rich and entertaining tour through this relatively young but important field for both math and CS/Eng.Connections are, e.g., made between advanced CS virtual-reality applications such as audio-systems processing, future applications such as quantum computing, and advanced math in functional analysis and operator theory.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A fresh look at wavelets
    The Book by Bratteli and Jorgensen is a superb book on wavelet's theory. It is very well written and has new and a fresh point of view on the subject. Although there are several good books on wavelets, the book by Bratteli and Jorgensen covers an important niche that has not been covered before. In particular

    1- The book covers the theory of wavelets from the point of view of operators and functional analysis and will appeal to a growing number of pure as well as applied mathematicians interested in the subject.

    2- The writing of the book is very appealing: every chapter starts by a tutorial that gives motivation as well as intuition. It is then followed by a very clean mathematical development of the subject, together with many examples, figures, and applications from physics and engineering.A set of nice problems is provided at the end of each chapter. Thus this book can be used as a graduate textbook or for mathematical seminars in mathematics departments.

    3- This book can even be used by experts in wavelet theory for learning about recent developments and new perspectives from operator theory and functional analysis.

    I highly recommend this book. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Too Elementary
    A Primer on Wavelets and Their Scientific Applications by Walker, James S.and Krantz, Steve G.

    There is nothing wrong with this book, but if you know the fundamentals of Fourier transforms, correlation and random processes, this book will be waste of your time and money.If one the other hand, you do not, than this is a readable book, but I think that it is a little thin.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best introductory book on wavelets
    This is the best introductory level book on wavelets I have read. It is written beautifully and is one of the few books that provides insight as to how and why wavelets are useful.

    Everyone should start out their investigation of wavelets with this book first. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The ideas and the software.
    This lovely little book helps the novice to get an idea of the math which underlies wavelets;-- and at the same time to learn how one readily gets hold of software that is convinient,-- that will make it easy for anyone to start playing around with it. The author also explains in plain English the wavelet aspects, and some of the mathematical constructs, behind audio denoising, signal compression, image recognition, speech recognition and more. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Reference for implementation of transform algorithms
    This is the only book i know that is focused on implementation aspects of numerical transforms. It explains quite well the practical issues that are rarely touched in digital signal processing and wavelet textbooks. It spans fourier transforms, cosine, wavelets,... It is rather self-contained, if you have problems with maths you can skip chapter one, other chapters should be quite readable by every science grad student. Be aware that this isnot a transform textbook, so you should first learn a few things about numerical transforms, wavelets and subband coding before getting into this one (go to Oppenheim and Schafer for DSP, Vetterli for subband coding). A good textbook for a course on numerical transforms implementation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars *Creating* wavelets!
    This is where to learn about wavelet packets, and what they can do.-- Where to learn the programming techniques that are especially adapted to wavelet algorithms, and which have proved their worth. The book actually tells you how to write a program;-- it motivates, and explains the elements step by step. It also gives the background, and offers a beautiful presentation of the essentials. It is selfcontained and a pleasure to read. It has the algorithmic approach to the discrete wavelet transform;--a topic that is hard to find elsewhere,-- at least in a systematic presentation.

    4-0 out of 5 stars not the easiest one around but well describing algorithms
    This book gave me a rather hard start with very dry and short theoretical introduction but the algorithmical/discrete part is well done and allows for implementation of most of the work where many details emerge ... I was missing solutions for the exercises though ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wavelets:pure and applied.
    This book consists of a selection of papers on wavelet themes. It came out at the same time of the CBMS lecture series of Daubechies, the one that turned into her book, 'Ten Lectures on Wavelets', which was issued in the SIAM series. The present book is a collective effort, and it is a volume in a very distinguished AMS book series. The subject of wavelts is special in the way it draws on a variety of areas within math, but even more unique in its versatility and its sucessful applications. Two general applied areas are signal processing and image compression. The mathematics behind this is timeless, and is highlighted in the book: Individual chapters by Y. Meyer, by Coifmann and Wickerhauser, and Wickerhauser(wavelet packets), D. Donoho(signals, densities and spectra from indirect and noisy data), and others make the book a landmark in the subject. It actually serves as an invitation to these exciting and related subareas of math. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A new tool!
    The subject of the book is a new tool in math, with a host of exciting applications. Of course, the subject has roots in classical ideas from harmonic analysis. But the book covers an explosive and exciting variety of developments since roughly 1990, and it is presented in the form of a graduate text. The basic idea begins with linear algebra, and progresses to expansions in function spaces, and multiresolutions. It will be useful to anyone who wants to learn from scratch about the underlying principles, the new results, and the applications. It is well written. A student of mine picked it up accidentally from my desk, and couldn't put it down. After awhile, he had completely forgotten what he came to see me about. It could have been some of the applications, such as antenna theory, wavelets, time-frequency analysis, uses in Radar, speech processing... ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of new additions.
    Of the many recent books on wavelets, this one by Jaffard, Meyer et al stands out. This is a new edition of earlier ones, starting with a French one, then a first translation, and now this expanded version. There is lots of new material, covering new developments, both with regards to theory and applications. The authors communicate the main points in a clear and attractive way, and it stresses lucid presentation of ideas over formulas. And with an infectious enthusiasm! The presentation is especially refreshing, in that the authors do not hide behind excessive technicalities and mathematical jargon. It is the central idea that shines through. And yet the mathematically sophisticated reader is paid his dues,-- in some cases via the appendices. At that point, the technical mathematical points have been well motivated. The emphasis of the book is the mathematics behind the many algorithms that emerged from the wavelet trends since the 1980ties. And lots of new stuff added (for example JPEG-2000), right up to the present. The book is rich in applications, many of which are not found elsewhere. The inclusion of motivation and historical remarks is welcome, and makes the book enjoyable reading.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good covering of wavelets applications
    Although this book emphasis is on algorithms and applications, the general presentation of wavelets for signal processing is great. The introduction to the subject is really excellent and great care has been given to explaining the use of wavelets for applications in signal processing. On the other side i found the last chapters dealing with applications a little too light for being useful...

    Anyway, a great book for "wavelets and applications in signal processing"...(also go to "Time-Frequency Time-scale analysis" by Patrick Flandrin which is wonderful). ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars MISLEADING TITLE
    When I saw the title of this book my expectation was to see examples of using Wavelets.The title uses the word 'Numerical'.It really should read 'Theoretical'.For those seeking applications of Wavelets, I do not recommend this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A new direction.
    Themes from math, science and engineering that predate the more recent trends in wavelts are signal processing, atomic decomposions of Calderon, splines, and finite element techniques of numerical analysis. All of these earlier ideas have enriched math, given new life and power to applied wavelet technology. While signal processing, filter banks, and pyramid algorithms have formed the under-current of a number of recent books on the interface of wavelets and some the neighboring fields, including applications, the interaction with numerical analysis hasn't really been presented in a systematic fashion in book form; so that students, and the rest of us, can pick and learn the fundamentals from scratch;-- not before this lovely new book by Albert Cohen: You find the methods and tools needed in the discretization of problems from PDE and from analysis. I hope the publisher will promote the book. It deserves it. Give it a try! I believe you will not be disappointed. Albert Cohen shows how wavelet tools have enriched numerical analysis and vice versa. ... Read more
