### Plotting a scalogram of a signal's Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT) in python

So I've been learning about wavelets for a few weeks because I'd like to use them in a research project I'm working on and I've been trying to grasp the general ideas behind them.I've been struggling ...

### Number of datapoints after decimation in discrete wavelet wavelet analysis

I am following an example provided by MATLAB on 1-D wavelet decomposition (DWT). The number of datapoints is 10000. If we do a level 3 decomposition following a similar example provided by MATLAB ...

### How to calculate Walsh hadamard transform for image patches of odd sizes?

I was reading this paper on optical flow, which as apart of the algorithm makes use Walsh-Hadamard transform on image patches of size 2r+1. So far, where ever I have looked, I could only find that ...

### What are the constraints in design of discrete orthogonal wavelets?

Can anyone point me to literature that explains a quote from here : Why is a wavelet transform implemented as a filter bank? So not all wavelets can be implemeted perfectly (invertible) with ...

### How to keep low frequencies in DCT

How can I keep a percentage r of the low frequencies of a Nx1 signal x using the Discrete Cosine Transform of it? Is it simply zeroing all but the first rN elements of DCT(x)?

### Band-limited random signal with arbitrary distribution?

I'd like to generate a random discrete-time signal that is band-limited to some bandwidth B (by means of a digital filter, ie in MATLAB). The catch is that I'd like this signal to have an arbitrary ...

### What is the exact meaning of the output of the Discrete Fourier Transform

I'm fairly new to the subject, but so far my understanding that this would be a transform you could use to go from a discrete set of data, say [1, 0, 1, 2] to a continuous sinusoidal function in the ...
