The concept of wavelets has been discussed in the literature for a very long time. It is based on fundamental ideas which were first expressed more than a century ago in a variety of forms. However, it is only recently that significant progress has been made in the application of wavelets to practical problems in signal processing. The wavelet transform has been proposed as a flexible tool for the multiresolution decomposition of continuous time signals. The pioneering work of Daubechies in the early 1980s has shown the linkage between the wavelet and subband transform theories. Since then, there has been an explosion of interest and a flurry of interdisciplinary research and development activities on wavelet and subband transforms, and their applications [Dau90].
