I wholeheartedly suggest this booklet for a superior and pleasant advent to wavelets, for someone who's pleased with the math required of undergraduate electric engineers. The book's attraction is that it covers all of the primary innovations of wavelets in a chic, trouble-free manner. It deals actually stress-free (friendly!) mathematical exposition that's wealthy in intuitive factors, in addition to fresh, direct, and transparent in its theoretical advancements. i discovered Kaiser's basic end-of-chapter routines excellent...Kaiser has written an outstanding advent to the elemental innovations of wavelets. For a ebook of its size and objective, i believe it's going to be primarily unbeatable for an extended time.

—Proceedings of the IEEE

It is definitely produced and definitely readable...This fabric may still current no hassle for fourth-year undergraduates...It will also be necessary to complicated staff in that it provides a distinct method of wavelet concept from the standard one.

—Computing Reviews

I stumbled on this to be a great booklet. it's eminently extra readable than the books...which should be thought of the relevant choices for textbooks on wavelets.

—Physics Today

This quantity is likely one of the so much mild advent to wavelet thought out there. As such, it responds to an important desire. The meant viewers will benefit from the inducement and commonsense reasons within the textual content. finally, it may well lead many readers, who would possibly not differently were capable of accomplish that, to move additional into wavelet thought, Fourier research, and sign processing.

—SIAM Review

The first half the ebook is adequately named. it's a well-written, properly prepared exposition...a welcome boost to the literature. the second one a part of the booklet introduces the concept that of electromagnetic wavelets...This thought gives you to have many different functions and will good result in new methods of learning those subject matters. This publication has a couple of targeted good points which...makes it quite invaluable for beginners to the field.

—Mathematical Reviews

The booklet is certainly what its identify delivers: A pleasant consultant to wavelets...In brief, Kaiser's booklet is excellently written and will be regarded as the best textbooks in this subject almost immediately will take pleasure in broad distribution between mathematicians and physicists drawn to wavelet analysis.
