We show that there are no biorthogonal pairs of divergence-free multiwavelet families on Rnhaving any regularity, such that both biorthogonal families have compactly supported, divergence-free generators. This main result generalizes Lemarié’s bivariate result. In particular, our method is based on vector-valued multiresolution analyses.
