Wavelets: Theory, Algorithms, and Applications is the fifth volume in the highly respected series, WAVELET ANALYSIS AND ITS APPLICATIONS. This volume shows why wavelet analysis has become a tool of choice infields ranging from image compression, to signal detection and analysis in electrical engineering and geophysics, to analysis of turbulent or intermittent processes. The 28 papers comprising this volume are organized into seven subject areas: multiresolution analysis, wavelet transforms, tools for time-frequency analysis, wavelets and fractals, numerical methods and algorithms, and applications. More than 135 figures supplement the text.

@qu:"...this book goes far deeper into this topic than you normally need it for the use in astronomy, but is a very good written textbook that allows you to look ahead on the general topic of wavelet analysis."
@qu:This volume provides an excellent snapshot of the broad activity in wavelet theory.
