Since their introduction in the 1980's, wavelets have become a powerful tool in mathematical analysis, with applications such as image compression, statistical estimation and numerical simulation of partial differential equations. One of their main attractive features is the ability to accurately represent fairly general functions with a small number of adaptively chosen wavelet coefficients, as well as to characterize the smoothness of such functions from the numerical behaviour of these coefficients. The theoretical pillar that underlies such properties involves approximation theory and function spaces, and plays a pivotal role in the analysis of wavelet-based numerical methods. This book offers a self-contained treatment of wavelets, which includes this theoretical pillar and it applications to the numerical treatment of partial differential equations. Its key features are: 1. Self-contained introduction to wavelet bases and related numerical algorithms, from the simplest examples to the most numerically useful general constructions. 2. Full treatment of the theoretical foundations that are crucial for the analysis of wavelets and other related multiscale methods : function spaces, linear and nonlinear approximation, interpolation theory. 3. Applications of these concepts to the numerical treatment of partial differential equations : multilevel preconditioning, sparse approximations of differential and integral operators, adaptive discretization strategies.

Isogeometric Analysis is a groundbreaking computational approach that promises the possibility of integrating the finite element method into conventional spline-based CAD design tools. It thus bridges the gap between numerical analysis and geometry, and moreover it allows to tackle new cutting edge applications at the frontiers of research in science and engineering. This proceedings volume contains a selection of outstanding research papers presented at the second International Workshop on Isogeometric Analysis and Applications, held at Annweiler, Germany, in April 2014.

Theoretically, multiwavelets hold significant advantages over standard wavelets, particularly for solving more complicated problems, and hence are of great interest. Meeting the needs of engineers and mathematicians, this book provides a comprehensive overview of multiwavelets. The author presents the theory of wavelets from the viewpoint of general multiwavelets, which includes scalar m-band and standard wavelets as special cases, provides a more coherent approach, and provides alternative proofs and new insights even for standard wavelets. The treatment includes complete MATLAB routines that allow readers to implement and experiment with multiwavelet algorithms.

This book gives a comprehensive overview of both the fundamentals of wavelet analysis and related tools, and of the most active recent developments towards applications. It offers a state-of-the-art in several active areas of research where wavelet ideas, or more generally multiresolution ideas have proved particularly effective. The main applications covered are in the numerical analysis of PDEs, and signal and image processing. Recently introduced techniques such as Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) and new trends in the recovery of missing data, such as compressed sensing, are also presented. Applications range for the reconstruction of noisy or blurred images, pattern and face recognition, to nonlinear approximation in strongly anisotropic contexts, and to the classification tools based on multifractal analysis.

This collection of independent case studies demonstrates how wavelet techniques have been used to solve open problems and develop insight into the nature of the systems under study. Each case begins with a description of the problem and points to the specific properties of wavelets and techniques used for determining a solution. The cases range from a very simple wavelet-based technique for reducing noise in laboratory data to complex work on two-dimensional geographical data display conducted at the Earthquake Research Institute in Japan. One case study shows how wavelet analysis is used in the development of a Japanese text-to-speech system for personal computers and another presents new wavelet techniques developed for and applied to the study of atmospheric wind, turbulent fluid, and seismic acceleration data. Although calculus and some junior and senior mathematics courses for scientists and engineers will suffice, a solid background in undergraduate mathematics, particularly analysis and numerical analysis, and some familiarity with the basics of wavelets are helpful for reading this book.

Wavelets is a carefully organized and edited collection of extended survey papers addressing key topics in the mathematical foundations and applications of wavelet theory. The first part of the book is devoted to the fundamentals of wavelet analysis. The construction of wavelet bases and the fast computation of the wavelet transform in both continuous and discrete settings is covered. The theory of frames, dilation equations, and local Fourier bases are also presented. The second part of the book discusses applications in signal analysis, while the third part covers operator analysis and partial differential equations. Each chapter in these sections provides an up-to-date introduction to such topics as sampling theory, probability and statistics, compression, numerical analysis, turbulence, operator theory, and harmonic analysis. The book is ideal for a general scientific and engineering audience, yet it is mathematically precise. It will be an especially useful reference for harmonic analysts, partial differential equation researchers, signal processing engineers, numerical analysts, fluids researchers, and applied mathematicians.
