Mathematics majors at Michigan State University take a "Capstone" course near the end of their undergraduate careers. The content of this course varies with each offering. Its purpose is to bring together different topics from the undergraduate curriculum and introduce students to a developing area in mathematics. This text was originally written for a Capstone course. Basic wavelet theory is a natural topic for such a course. By name, wavelets date back only to the 1980s. On the boundary between mathematics and engineering, wavelet theory shows students that mathematics research is still thriving, with important applications in areas such as image compression and the numerical solution of differential equations. The author believes that the essentials of wavelet theory are sufficiently elementary to be taught successfully to advanced undergraduates. This text is intended for undergraduates, so only a basic background in linear algebra and analysis is assumed. We do not require familiarity with complex numbers and the roots of unity.

Zusammen mit der Abstraktion ist die Mathematik das entscheidende Werkzeug für technologische Innovationen. Das Buch bietet eine Einführung in zahlreiche Anwendungen der Mathematik auf dem Gebiet der Technologie. Meist werden moderne Anwendungen dargestellt, die heute zum Alltag gehören. Die mathematischen Grundlagen für technologische Anwendungen sind dabei relativ elementar, was die Leistungsstärke der mathematischen Modellbildung und der mathematischen Hilfsmittel beweist. Mit zahlreichen originellen Übungen am Ende eines jeden Kapitels.

This book presents first-year calculus roughly in the order in which it was first discovered. The first two chapters show how the ancient calculations of practical problems led to infinite series, differential and integral calculus and to differential equations. The establishment of mathematical rigour for these subjects in the 19th century for one and several variables is treated in chapters III and IV. Many quotations are included to give the flavor of the history. The text is complemented by a large number of examples, calculations and mathematical pictures and will provide stimulating and enjoyable reading for students, teachers, as well as researchers.

Intended for an honors calculus course or for an introduction to analysis, this is an ideal text for undergraduate majors since it covers rigorous analysis, computational dexterity, and a breadth of applications. The book contains many remarkable features: * complete avoidance of /epsilon-/delta arguments by using sequences instead * definition of the integral as the area under the graph, while area is defined for every subset of the plane * complete avoidance of complex numbers * heavy emphasis on computational problems * applications from many parts of analysis, e.g. convex conjugates, Cantor set, continued fractions, Bessel functions, the zeta functions, and many more * 344 problems with solutions in the back of the book.

This textbook illuminates the field of discrete mathematics with examples, theory, and applications of the discrete volume of a polytope. The authors have weaved a unifying thread through basic yet deep ideas in discrete geometry, combinatorics, and number theory. We encounter here a friendly invitation to the field of "counting integer points in polytopes", and its various connections to elementary finite Fourier analysis, generating functions, the Frobenius coin-exchange problem, solid angles, magic squares, Dedekind sums, computational geometry, and more. With 250 exercises and open problems, the reader feels like an active participant.

This book provides a comprehensive presentation of the conceptual basis of wavelet analysis, including the construction and analysis of wavelet bases. It motivates the central ideas of wavelet theory by offering a detailed exposition of the Haar series, then shows how a more abstract approach allows readers to generalize and improve upon the Haar series. It then presents a number of variations and extensions of Haar construction.

Diese Einführung in die Welt der Wavelets ist gedacht für Studierende der Mathematik in oberen Semestern, aber auch für mathematisch interessierte Ingenieure. Sie hat zum Ziel, die notwendigen mathematischen Grundlagen und die eigentlichen Wavelet-Konstruktionen sowie die zugehörigen Algorithmen im Zusammenhang darzustellen. Die (für Studierende) abstrakten Inhalte der "höheren Analysis" werden konkret an Beispielen mathematisch durchsichtig gemacht, z.B. an signaltechnische Erfahrungen von Anwendern. Zahlreiche Figuren und durchgerechnete Beispiele bereichern den Band.

An "applications first" approach to discrete wavelettransformations Discrete Wavelet Transformations provides readers with a broadelementary introduction to discrete wavelet transformations andtheir applications. With extensive graphical displays, thisself-contained book integrates concepts from calculus and linearalgebra into the construction of wavelet transformations and theirvarious applications, including data compression, edge detection inimages, and signal and image denoising. The book begins with a cursory look at wavelet transformationdevelopment and illustrates its allure in digital signal and imageapplications. Next, a chapter on digital image basics, quantitativeand qualitative measures, and Huffman coding equips readers withthe tools necessary to develop a comprehensive understanding of theapplications. Subsequent chapters discuss the Fourier series,convolution, and filtering, as well as the Haar wavelet transformto introduce image compression and image edge detection. Thedevelopment of Daubechies filtersis presented in addition tocoverage of wavelet shrinkage in the area of image and signaldenoising. The book concludes with the construction of biorthogonalfilters and also describes their incorporation in the JPEG2000image compression standard. The author's "applications first" approach promotes a hands-ontreatment of wavelet transforma-tion construction, and over 400exercises are presented in a multi-part format that guide readersthrough the solution to each problem. Over sixty computer labs andsoftware development projects provide opportunities for readers towrite modules and experiment with the ideas discussed throughoutthe text. The author's software package, DiscreteWavelets, is usedto perform various imaging and audio tasks, compute wavelettransformations and inverses, and visualize the output of thecomputations. Supplementary material is also available via thebook's related Web site, which includes an audio and videorepository, final project modules, and softwarefor reproducingexamples from the book. All software, including theDiscreteWavelets package, is available for use withMathematica®, MATLAB®, and Maple. Discrete Wavelet Transformations strongly reinforces the use ofmathematics in digital data applications, sharpens programmingskills, and provides a foundation for further study of moreadvanced topics, such as real analysis. This book is ideal forcourses on discrete wavelet transforms and their applications atthe undergraduate level and also serves as an excellent referencefor mathematicians, engineers, and scientists who wish to learnabout discrete wavelet transforms at an elementary level.

Dieses richtungsweisende Lehrbuch für die Anwendung der Mathematik in anderen Wissenschaftszweigen gibt eine Einführung in die Theorie der gewöhnlichen Differentialgleichungen. Fortran und APL-Programme geben den Studenten die Möglichkeit, verschiedene numerische Näherungsverfahren an ihrem PC selbst durchzurechnen. Aus den Besprechungen: "Die Darstellung ist überall mathematisch streng und zudem ungemein anregend. Abgesehen von manchen historischen Bemerkungen ... tragen dazu die vielen mit ausführlichem Hintergrund sehr eingehend entwickelten praktischen Anwendungen bei. ... Besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird der physikalisch und technisch so wichtigen Frage nach Stabilität von Lösungen eines Systems von Differentialgleichungen gewidmet. Das Buch ist wegen seiner geringen Voraussetzungen und vorzüglichen Didaktik schon für alle Studenten des 3. Semesters geeignet; seine eminent praktische Haltung empfiehlt es aber auch für alle Physiker, die mit Differentialgleichungen und ihren Anwendungen umzugehen haben." #Physikalische Blätter#

This introduction to the discrete wavelet transform and its applications is based on a novel approach to discrete wavelets called lifting. After an elementary introduction, connections of filter theory are presented, and wavelet packet transforms are defined. The time-frequency plane is used for interpretation of signals, problems with finite length signals are detailed, and MATLAB is used for examples and implementation of transforms.
