Tight frames of compactly supported affine wavelets. (English) Zbl 0708.46020

Summary: This paper extends the class of orthonormal bases of compactly supported wavelets recently constructed by I. Daubechies [Commun. Pure Appl. Math. 41, 901–906 (1988; Zbl 0644.42026)]. For each integer \(N\geq 1\), a family of wavelet functions \(\psi\) having support [0,2N-1] is constructed such that \(\{\psi_{jk}(x)=2^{j/2} \psi (2^ jx-k)|\) j,k\(\in {\mathbb Z}\}\) is a tight frame of \(L^ 2({\mathbb R})\), i.e., for every \(f\in L^ 2({\mathbb R})\), \(f=c\sum_{jk}<\psi_{jk}| f>\psi_{jk}\) for some \(c>0\). This family is parametrized by an algebraic subset \(V_ N\) of \({\mathbb R}^{4N}\). Furthermore, for \(N\geq 2\), a proper algebraic subset \(W_ N\) of \(V_ N\) is specified such that all points in \(V_ N\) outside of \(W_ N\) yield orthonormal bases. The relationship between these tight frames and the theory of group representations and coherent states is discussed.
