Characteristic Wavelet Equations and Generalizations of the Spectral Function

  • Veronika Furst
Part of the Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis book series (ANHA)


Two equations characterize orthonormal (and Parseval) wavelets in L2(ℝ). We trace the history and development of this characterization and present a different argument that uses a generalization of the spectral function of Bownik and Rzeszotnik. By further generalizing this function in the setting of an abstract Hilbert space, we present a compressed proof of the abstract characteristic equation.
