An Overview of Wavelet Regularization

  • Yazhen Wang
Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 141)


This chapter reviews the construction of wavelet thresholding (shrinkage) estimators by regularization. Both penalty and maximum a posterori approaches are presented and their relation is discussed.
