Book Description
The last 15 years have seen an explosion of interest in wavelets with applications in fields such as image compression, turbulence, human vision, radar and earthquake prediction.
Wavelets represent an area that combines signal in image processing, mathematics, physics and electrical engineering.
As such, this title is intended for the wide audience that is interested in mastering the basic techniques in this subject area, such as decomposition and compression.
