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.

What types of sound attenuation do exist?

Sound attenuation can occur due to various phenomena. The most known are Distance: For a point source the sound pressure decreases by 6dB with each doubling of the distance to the sound source. ...

Can finite Multi-Resolution Analysis satisfy the Littlewood-Paley Criterion (unity partition)?

Suppose we are working with a multi resolution analysis (MRA) of $L^2(\mathbb{R})$ and let $\phi$ be the corresponding scaling function and $\psi$ the derived wavelets. Using standard notation with $\...

Littlewood-Paley Conditions, Scattering, and Multi-Resolution Analysis

So I am trying to understand the scattering transform on graphs (GST). There are many formulations but I am stuck on equation 8 in this paper. Here they give a condition on a wavelets that looks like ...

What is "spin" for the 2D (separable) Morlet?

The 2D Morlet formed separably as product of 1D Morlets, used in JTFS, is said to have "spin": $$ \begin{align} \Psi_{{\mu, l, +1}}(t, \lambda) &= \psi_\mu(t) \psi_{l}(+\lambda) &&...

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 ...
