Wavelets and renormalization. (English) Zbl 0949.65145
Series in Approximations and Decompositions 10. Singapore: World Scientific (ISBN 981-02-2624-1/hbk; 978-981-281-739-6/ebook). xiv, 561 p. (1999).
This book is devoted to both the application of wavelet analysis to mathematical physics and the impact of mathematical physics on wavelet analysis. The main goal is to describe the natural connection between wavelet analysis and the renormalization group formalism. The book also contains other themes like Osterwalder-Schrader positivity, combinatorial description of cluster expansions, construction of wavelets from a pure mathematical point of view. This book is mainly for mathematical physicists.
