There are a lot of Wavelet books out there. Can’t I just save some money and learn Wavelets on my own?
A. You can, but be prepared to spend a lot of time with mathematical equations. A look inside existing Wavelet Analysis texts quickly reveals a heavy dependence on math. This presentation is the only one we’ve run across that DOESN’T rely on matrices and transposes, frame theory, vector spaces, signal spaces, Hilbert spaces, proofs, theorems, lemmas, etc. etc. to try to teach CONCEPTS through EQUATIONS. In this user friendly guide we emphasize informed USE of Wavelets and leave the rigorous PROOFS to scholarly texts. We do reference some excellent traditional texts, papers, and websites for additional study if desired. However, we feel that further learning from the equations is made much easier and more palatable when you already understand them and have actually seen them “in action”. Even accomplished mathematicians have expressed gratitude for extra insights not immediately obvious from the equations.
