Summary: The regularity of refinable functions is linked to the spectral properties of special operators associated to the refinement equation; we then use the Fredholm determinant theory to derive numerical estimates for the spectral radius of these operators in certain spaces. This new technique is particularly useful for estimating the regularity in the cases where the refinement equation has an infinite number of nonzero coefficients and in the multidimensional cases.
