Wavelets are versatile tools in signal analysis and representation, complementing existing tools from harmonic analysis. In recent years, an upsurge of interest in wavelet methods influenced the area of image processing. Wavelet techniques combine traditional methods from imaging and harmonic analysis, thus yealding powerful and efficient algorithms for various applications.
