This introduction to wavelet analysis, and to wavelet-based statistical analysis of time series, gives detailed descriptions of the theory and algorithms needed to understand and implement the discrete wavelet (and related) transforms. Numerous examples illustrate the techniques on real data. Embedded exercises--with full solutions provided--aid self-guided study; additional exercises can be used in a classroom setting. A Web site gives access to the time series and wavelets used in the book, as well as information on how to access software in S-Plus and other languages.
