Abstract : The mathematical theory and engineering applications of rank M wavelets and M-band filter banks are explored. Techniques for wavelet filter design are given, as well as the theory of smoothness (regularity) for wavelet systems. An overview of the WaveTool signal processing software package follows. Applications of rank M wavelets to telecommunications and data compression are described. Theoretical and laboratory results concerning wavelet based multicarrier modulation for last mile communications are reviewed. In addition, improvements to wavelet image compression and new applications to seismic, multispectral, and sonar data are presented. Finally, signal processing with multiwavelets is introduced. The interaction between the theory of rank M wavelets and the requirements of real world applications is considered throughout.
