Because of the iterative form of this algorithm, applying the same process over and over, it is sometimes called the cascade algorithm [link] , [link] .

Iterating the filter bank

An interesting method for calculating the scaling function also uses an iterative procedure which consists of the stages of the filterstructure of Chapter: Filter Banks and the Discrete Wavelet Transform which calculates wavelet expansions coefficients (DWT values) at one scale from those at another. A scalingfunction, wavelet expansion of a scaling function itself would be a single nonzero coefficient at the scale of j = 1 . Passing this single coefficient through the synthesis filter structure of Figure: Two-Stage Two-Band Synthesis Tree and [link] would result in a fine scale output that for large j would essentially be samples of the scaling function.

Successive approximation in the frequency domain

The Fourier transform of the scaling function defined in [link] is an important tool for studying and developing wavelet theory. It could beapproximately calculated by taking the DFT of the samples of φ ( t ) but a more direct approach is available using the infinite product in [link] . From this formulation we can see how the zeros of H ( ω ) determine the zeros of Φ ( ω ) . The existence conditions in Theorem 5 require H ( π ) = 0 or, more generally, H ( ω ) = 0 for ω = ( 2 k + 1 ) π . Equation [link] gives the relation of these zeros of H ( ω ) to the zeros of Φ ( ω ) . For the index k = 1 , H ( ω / 2 ) = 0 at ω = 2 ( 2 k + 1 ) π . For k = 2 , H ( ω / 4 ) = 0 at ω = 4 ( 2 k + 1 ) π , H ( ω / 8 ) = 0

at ω = 8 ( 2 k + 1 ) π , etc. Because [link] is a product of stretched versions of H ( ω ) , these zeros of H ( ω / 2 j ) are the zeros of the Fourier transform of φ ( t ) . Recall from  Theorem 15 that H ( ω ) has no zeros in - π / 3 < ω < π / 3 . All of this gives a picture of the shape of Φ ( ω ) and the location of its zeros. From an asymptotic analysis of Φ ( ω ) as ω , one can study the smoothness of  φ ( t ) .

A Matlab program that calculates Φ ( ω ) using this frequency domain successive approximations approach suggested by [link] is given in Appendix C . Studying this program gives further insight into the structure of Φ ( ω ) . Rather than starting the calculations given in [link] for the index j = 1 , they are started for the largest j = J and worked backwards. If we calculate a length-N DFT consistent with j = J using the FFT, then the samples of H ( ω / 2 j ) for j = J - 1 are simply every other sample of the case for j = J . The next stage for j = J - 2 is done likewise and if the original N is chosen a power of two, the process in continued down to j = 1 without calculating any more FFTs. This results in a very efficient algorithm. The details are in theprogram itself.

This algorithm is so efficient, using it plus an inverse FFT might be a good way to calculate φ ( t ) itself. Examples of the algorithm are illustrated in [link] where the transform is plotted for each step of the iteration.

The dyadic expansion of the scaling function

The next method for evaluating the scaling function uses a completely different approach. It starts by calculating the values of the scalingfunction at integer values of t , which can be done exactly (within our ability to solve simultaneous linear equations). Consider the basicrecursion equation [link] for integer values of t = k

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
