The purpose of this chapter is to present some of the basic concepts behind image coding with the wavelet transform. There are many excellent expositions of the theory and practice of image and signal compression using wavelets, and the reader is encouraged to consult those references for more information. The goal here is to give the reader enough information to design a model wavelet-transform image coder.
