We next define the k t h moments of ψ ( t ) as

m ( k ) = t k ψ ( t ) d t

and the k t h discrete moments of h ( n ) as

μ ( k ) = n n k h ( n ) .

Theorem 36 (Equivalent Characterizations of K-Regular M-Band Filters) A unitary scaling filter is K-regular if and only if the following equivalentstatements are true:

  1. All moments of the wavelet filters are zero, μ ( k ) = 0 , for k = 0 , 1 , , ( K - 1 ) and for = 1 , 2 , , ( M - 1 )
  2. All moments of the wavelets are zero, m ( k ) = 0 , for k = 0 , 1 , , ( K - 1 ) and for = 1 , 2 , , ( M - 1 )
  3. The partial moments of the scaling filter are equal for k = 0 , 1 , , ( K - 1 )
  4. The frequency response of the scaling filter has zeros of order K at the M t h roots of unity, ω = 2 π / M for = 1 , 2 , , M - 1 .
  5. The magnitude-squared frequency response of the scaling filter is flat to order 2K at ω = 0 . This follows from [link] .
  6. All polynomial sequences up to degree ( K - 1 ) can be expressed as a linear combination of integer-shifted scaling filters.
  7. All polynomials of degree up to ( K - 1 ) can be expressed as a linear combination of integer-shifted scaling functions for all j .

This powerful result [link] , [link] is similar to the M = 2 case presented in Chapter: Regularity, Moments, and Wavelet System Design . It not only ties the number of zero moments to the regularity but also to the degree of polynomials that canbe exactly represented by a sum of weighted and shifted scaling functions. Note the location of the zeros of H ( z ) are equally spaced around the unit circle, resulting in a narrower frequency response than for thehalf-band filters if M = 2 . This is consistent with the requirements given in [link] and illustrated in [link] .

Sketches of some of the derivations in this section are given in the Appendix or are simple extensions of the M = 2 case. More details are given in [link] , [link] , [link] .

M-band scaling function design

Calculating values of φ ( n ) can be done by the same methods given in Section: Calculating the Basic Scaling Function and Wavelet . However, the design of the scaling coefficients h ( n ) parallels that for the two-band case but is somewhat more difficult [link] .

One special set of cases turns out to be a simple extension of the two-band system. If the multiplier M = 2 m , then the scaling function is simply a scaled version of the M = 2 case and a particular set of corresponding wavelets are those obtained by iterating the waveletbranches of the Mallat algorithm tree as is done for wavelet packets described in [link] . For other values of M , especially odd values, the situation is more complex.

M-band wavelet design and cosine modulated methods

For M > 2 the wavelet coefficients h ( n ) are not uniquely determined by the scaling coefficients, as was the case for M = 2 . This is both a blessing and a curse. It gives us more flexibility in designing specific systems,but it complicates the design considerably. For small N and M , the designs can be done directly, but for longer lengths and/or for large M , direct design becomes impossible and something like the cosine modulateddesign of the wavelets from the scaling function as described in Chapter: Filter Banks and Transmultiplexers , is probably the bestapproach [link] , [link] , [link] , [link] , [link] [link] , [link] , [link] , [link] , [link] , [link] , [link] , [link] , [link] .

Wavelet packets

The classical M = 2 wavelet system results in a logarithmic frequency resolution. The low frequencies have narrow bandwidths and the highfrequencies have wide bandwidths, as illustrated in Figure: Frequency Bands for the Analysis Tree . This is called “constant-Q" filtering and is appropriate for someapplications but not all. The wavelet packet system was proposed by Ronald Coifman [link] , [link] to allow a finer and adjustable resolution of frequencies at high frequencies. It also gives a rich structure thatallows adaptation to particular signals or signal classes. The cost of this richer structureis a computational complexity of O ( N log ( N ) ) , similar to the FFT, in contrast to the classical wavelet transform which is O ( N ) .

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
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.
