Definition: | integral of the product of a function and a shifted and scaled wavelet Note 1 to entry: For a function $f(t)$ and a wavelet $\psi (t)$: ${C}_{f}(a,b)={\displaystyle {\int}_{-\infty}^{+\infty}f(t)}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\psi}_{a,b}^{\ast}(t)\mathrm{d}t$ where Note 2 to entry: A discrete wavelet transform is obtained by choosing a finite number of values of the two parameters. The inverse transform expresses the function of time as a superposition of wavelets. | ||

Note 1 to entry: For a function $f(t)$ and a wavelet $\psi (t)$:

${C}_{f}(a,b)={\displaystyle {\int}_{-\infty}^{+\infty}f(t)}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\psi}_{a,b}^{\ast}(t)\mathrm{d}t$

where *a* is the scale parameter, *b* is the position parameter, and * denotes the complex conjugate.

Note 2 to entry: A discrete wavelet transform is obtained by choosing a finite number of values of the two parameters. The inverse transform expresses the function of time as a superposition of wavelets.
