Table of Contents

The Time-Frequency Problem
Classes of Solutions
Issues of Interpretation
Time-Frequency as a Paradigm


This highly acclaimed work has so far been available only in French. It is a detailed survey of a variety of techniques for time-frequency/time-scale analysis (the essence of "Wavelet Analysis"). This book has broad and comprehensive coverage of a topic of keen interest to a variety of engineers, especially those concerned with signal and image processing. Flandrin provides a discussion of numerous issues and problems that arise from a mixed description in time and frequency, as well as problems in interpretation inherent in signal theory.

Key Features

  • Detailed coverage of both linear and quadratic solutions
  • Various techniques for both random and deterministic signals


Students and practitioners of mathematics, computer science, and electrical engineering, especially image processing engineers; universities offering courses in image compression

Praise for the Book
"Nowadays one can say that signal processing offers a forum to numerous disciplines and requires manifold knowledge which can rarely be combined by a single scientist. P. Flandrin takes up this challenge with so much competence and a truly multi-disciplinary vision." --Preface, TIME-FREQUENCY/Time-Scale Analysis, YVES MEYER, French Academy of Sciences.
