The fundamental idea behind wavelets is to analyze according to
scale. Indeed, some researchers in the wavelet field feel that, by
using wavelets, one is adopting a whole new mindset or perspective
in processing data.
Wavelets are functions that satisfy certain mathematical requirements
and are used in representing data or other functions. This idea is
not new. Approximation using superposition of functions has existed
since the early 1800's, when Joseph Fourier discovered that he could
superpose sines and cosines to represent other functions. However,
in wavelet analysis, the scale that one uses in looking at data
plays a special role. Wavelet algorithms process data at different
scales or resolutions. If we look at a signal with alarge
"window," we would notice gross features. Similarly, if we look at
a signal with a small "window," we would notice small
discontinuities. The result in wavelet analysis is to "see the
forest and the trees."
Can you see why these features make wavelets interesting and useful?
For many decades, scientists have wanted more appropriate functions than the
and cosines which comprise the bases of Fourier analysis, to
approximate choppy signals. By their definition, these functions
are non-local (and stretch out to infinity), and therefore do a very
poor job in approximating sharp spikes. But with wavelet analysis,
we can use approximating functions that are contained neatly in
finite domains. Wavelets are well-suited for approximating data with
The wavelet analysis procedure is to adopt a wavelet prototype
function, called an "analyzing wavelet" or "mother wavelet."
Temporal analysis is performed with a contracted, high-frequency
version of the prototype wavelet, while frequency analysis is
performed with a dilated, low-frequency version of the prototype
wavelet. Because the original signal or function can be represented
in terms of a wavelet expansion (using coefficients in a linear
combination of the wavelet functions), data operations can be
performed using just the corresponding wavelet coefficients. And if
you further choose the best wavelets adapted to your data, or
truncate the coefficients below a threshold, your data is sparsely
represented. This "sparse coding" makes wavelets an excellent tool
in the field of data compression.
Other applied fields that are making use of wavelets are: astronomy,
acoustics, nuclear engineering, sub-band coding, signal and image
processing, neurophysiology, music, magnetic resonance imaging,
speech discrimination, optics, fractals, turbulence,
earthquake-prediction, radar, human vision, and pure mathematics
applications such as solving partial differential equations.
An Introduction to Wavelets Paper
The above is the first section from my paper: "An Introduction to Wavelets"
which was published in the IEEE Computational Sciences and
Engineering, Volume 2, Number 2, Summer 1995, pp 50-61.

Victor Wickerhauser has suggested that sound synthesis is a natural
use of wavelets. If one wishes to approximate the sound of a musical
instrument, the notes can be decomposed into its wavelet packet
coefficients. Reproducing the note would then require reloading
those coefficients into a wavelet packet generator and playing back
the result. Transient characteristics such as attack and decay can
be controlled separately (for example, with envelope generators), or
by using longer wave packets and encoding those properties, as well,
into each note.
Wickerhauser has done just this. He has created combinations of wave
packets that produces especially interesting sounds. In Fall 1994, he
kindly gave me one these wavelet tonebursts to use (many thanks!).
The sound of this particular toneburst is haunting. I found that I
couldn't get the sound out of my head for days after hearing it! If
your Web browser and/or WWW helper application supports .au sound
files, then hear this wavelet toneburst sound for yourself.

Panos Kudumakis in the Sound Engineering Research Group
at the King's College University of London has a wavelet toneburst program
that works interactively. His program uses random number wavelet packets

From "The Hartley Transform"
by Ronald N.
Bracewell. (Oxford Press, 1st ed, 1986, page 6)
"When the FFT was brought into the limelight by Cooley and Tukey in 1965 it
had an enthusiastic reception in the populous world of electrical signal
analysis as the news spread via tutorial articles and special issues of
journals. This ferment occasioned mild surprise in the world of numerical
analysis, where related techniques were already known. Admirable sleuthing
by M.T. Heideman, C.S. Burrus, and D.H. Johnson (to appear in 'Archive for
History of the Exact Sciences') has now traced the origins of the method back
to a paper of C.F. Gauss (1777-1855) written in 1805, where he says,
'Experience will teach the user that this method will greatly lessen
the tedium of mechanical calculation.' "
"A fascinating sidelight of the historical investigation is that Gauss' fast
method for evaluating the sum of a Fourier series antedates the work on which
Fourier's fame is based. We should hasten to add that Gauss' paper was not
published until much later [Collected Works, Vol. 3 (Gottingen: Royal Society
of Sciences, 1876)], and we should remember that when Fourier introduced the
idea of representing an arbitrary periodic function as a trigonometric series
eminent mathematicians such as Lagrange resisted it."
