Questions tagged [scattering]

Wavelet scattering is a convolutional network formed by cascade of wavelets, modulus nonlinearities, and lowpass filters. It yields invariant, sparse, and stable representations useful for classification, generation, and other tasks. Filters are fixed, but architecture differentiable and extendable with learned layers adapted to data.

Classification of Signals using Features Extracted from Wavelet Scattering Coefficients

I have a set of RF signal samples of 2s length each recorded at 2MHz sampling rate, such as this IQ file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dd6fr4va4alpazj/move_x_movedist_1_speed_25k_sample_6.wav?dl=0 I can ...

Choosing a good low pass filter in the wavelet scattering transform

What's the impact of a specific filter $\phi$ when building the wavelet scattering transform? I mean, if I compute the MFCC choosing different windows, (Hamming, Blackman, etc.), the behaviour ...

Time support for wavelets in scattering transform

In 1 they say that the energy of $\psi_\lambda(t)$ is concentrated in an interval of length $2\pi Q/\lambda$. I understand the inverse proportionality between the frequency band $\lambda/Q$ and the ...

Building the low pass filter in the wavelet scattering transform

In 1, analyzing the equivalence between MFCC and wavelet transform, the scaled wavelets are truncated for $\lambda < 2\pi Q/T$ to fit the time spread of the wavelets within the length $T$ of the ...

Joint Time-Frequency Scattering structure & implementation?

How does JTFS differ from wavelet time scattering in its computation graph, and how does FDTS discriminability work, at a lower level? How is it implemented in practice, and how can one visualize ...

Wavelet Scattering time-warp equivariance

Is scattering equivariant to multiplicative time warps? Defined as $$ x(t) \rightarrow x(\tau(t)t),\ \text{sup}|\tau'(t)| < 1 $$ This post claims it holds approximately - what are the arguments, ...

Why does each node in the wavelet scattering transform split into multiple paths?

Why does each node in the wavelet scattering transform split into multiple paths as in this figure from Deep Scattering Spectrum? I understand roughly what’s happening along a single path, but I don’...
