In the book by Sayood on compression, he says "if the set is complete, it is called affine wavelets". I want to know what is meant by completeness of wavelets.

  • $\begingroup$ No, I wanted to say completeness of a set. $\endgroup$ – Seetha Rama Raju Sanapala May 6 '15 at 7:19
  • $\begingroup$ You can always edit your question, that's better than adding a comment correcting the question. $\endgroup$ – Matt L. May 6 '15 at 8:45
  • $\begingroup$ Your quote lacks context, so you leave everyone guessing, really. Completeness may refer to a number of concepts, and it could for example mean that the wavelets span the signal space. Make your question better by giving more relevant context and a pointer to the book. $\endgroup$ – Jazzmaniac May 6 '15 at 8:57
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, It is better to edit than correct the question through comments. I tried that and only when failed I added as a comment. I could not find edit that time. Also a while back, when I was trying to include this comment, it was not taking in this comment too. The box was just appearing and disappearing immediately. $\endgroup$ – Seetha Rama Raju Sanapala May 7 '15 at 11:04
  • $\begingroup$ OK. This is from - the very top line - page no. 480 of 3rd edition of Introduction to data compression by Khalid Sayood. " The most popular approach is to select a = a0^(-m) and b = nb0a0^(-m). If this set is complete then psi_m,n(t) are called affine wavelets." $\endgroup$ – Seetha Rama Raju Sanapala May 7 '15 at 11:12
