Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


Wavelet transforms, Riesz basis and frames, multiscale analysis and construction of wavelet basis, spline wavelets, biorthogonal wavelets, wavelet decomposition and functions spaces, applications of wavelet analysis

Learning Outcome

At the end of module the students have mathematical understanding of basic wavelets techniques and are able to analyse functions by wavelet transform and wavelet decomposition.
They can apply these wavelet techniques in different fields and have programming skills for wavelet approximation.

Courses, Learning and Teaching Methods and Literature

Courses and Schedule

Please keep in mind that course announcements are regularly only completed in the semester before.

VO 3 Wavelets Filbir, F.
UE 1 Wavelets (Exercise Session) Filbir, F.

Learning and Teaching Methods

The module consists of the lecture supplemented by an exercise session. The lecture material is presented on the blackboard. The students are encouraged to study course references and course subjects. The exercise session consists of theoretical exercises. In the theoretical exercises students will work under instructor assistance on assignments, sometimes in teamwork. The exercises contribute to a better understanding of the lecture materials.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The examination is a 90 minutes' written test without any auxiliary resources. The students are asked to explain basic properties of wavelets and their mathematical derivation. They demonstrate their ability to analyse functions and function spaces by wavelet transforms and wavelet decomposition. They can read, understand, and write short numerical programmes for wavelet approximation schemes.

Exam Repetition

The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
