There are many people I wish to thank for their help on this project. This book evolved from a series of lecture notes for a course on wavelets and their applications and as a result, several students were exposed to less refined versions of the text. I appreciate their patience, suggestions for improvements, and willingness to test algorithms and point out errors in the manuscript. In particular, I am indebted to Jessica Klaers for her thorough review of the first six chapters of the book. Her interpretations of my mistakes were informative as well as entertaining. University of St. Thomas colleagues Jeffrey Jalkio, Arkady Shemyakin, and Heekyung Youn read various chapters of the book and provided valuable feedback. My department chair, John Kemper, was a source of constant support and also attended a workshop where he worked through and commented on many of the computer labs that appear in the book. David Ruch at Metropolitan State College of Denver has read much of the text and provided invaluable suggestions and encouragement. Dan Flath at Macalester College taught the course during the spring 2007 semester and suggested many improvements for the book; I am particularly grateful for his careful reading of Chapter 10. I wish to thank Colm Mulcahy from Spelman College for finding numerous typographical errors in one of the final versions of the manuscript. I owe a large debt of gratitude to my friend and mentor David Kammler at Southern Illinois University – Carbondale. ...
