Wavelets are an alternative tool for signal decomposition using orthogonal functions. Unlike basic Fourier analysis, wavelets do not lose completely time information, a feature that makes the technique suitable for applications where the temporal location of the signal’s frequency content is important.One of the fields where wavelets have been successfully applied is data analysis. In particular, it has been demonstrated that wavelets produce excellent results in signal denoising i.e. the removal of noise from an unknown signal. Shrinkage methods for noise removal, first introduced by Donoho in 1993, have led to a variety of approaches combining wavelets with probabilistic concepts leading to new efficient denoising procedures. This work presents a summary of basic methods for noise removal. Their main features and limitations are discussed and a comparison study is developed. A signal contaminated with Gaussian additivenoise is used as testbed for the methods. Conclusions on the performance of the methods, based upon computational efficiency and number of terms used for decomposition, are presented.

Introduction

The basic idea which lies behind wavelets is the representation of an arbitrary function as a combination of simpler functions, generated as scaled and dilated versions of a particular oscillatory “mother” function.

Late Jean Morlet, a geophysical engineer, introduced the term “wavelet” while attempting to analyze signals related to seismic data. The mathematical formulation of the wavelet transform and its inverse was rigorouslyestablished by Grossman and Morlet citep( ). Since then, ideas from diverse scientific fields have resulted in developing wavelets into a powerful analysis tool.

The term wavelet is often used to denote a signal located in time with a concentrated amount of energy citep( ). This “mother” wavelet is used to generate a set of “daughter”functions through the operations of scaling and dilation applied to the mother wavelet. This set forms an orthogonal basis that allows, using inner products,to decompose any given signal much like in the case of Fourier analysis. Wavelets, however, are superior to Fourier analysis for time information is not lost when moving to the frequency domain. This property makes them suitable forapplications from diverse fields where the frequency content of a signal as well as the energy's temporal location is valuable.

The wavelets application of interest for this work is their use for data analysis, specifically for signals denoising. Denoising stands for the process of removing noise, i.e unwanted information, present in an unknown signal.The use of wavelets for noise removal was first introduced by Donoho and Johnstone citep( ). The shrinkage methods for noise removal, first introduced by Donoho citep( ), have led to a variety of approaches to signal denoising.
