### 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 ...

### Can coefficients of a DWT be computed using least squares approximation?

I assume that it can be computed given function values for each sample as a vector and wavelet values for each scale and translation packed in a matrix. Can anyone clarify the matrix construction and ...

### CWT matlab function [closed]

i'm trying to apply the cwt function from matlab in the first graph and from the different articles that i've read i should get something that shows different peaks to determine the location of damage,...

### 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)?

### Nyquist Rate (Sampling Frequency) for ${f}^{2} \left( x, y \right)$

We are given that $f(x,y)$ is highest frequency is $\omega$ what will be the frequency sample rate if we want to restore the function of the form $g(x,y)=f^2(x,y)$ Would it be correct to say that ...

### How can I calculate the Number of bins per octave?

I am trying to calculate the Constant Q Transform for Monophonic audio using Python. The Python has the library to calculate the CQT , the default value of num_bins_per_octave is 12. How would one ...

### Why does the Stationary Wavelet Transform shift this image?

I am running a stationary wavelet transformation on a brain image. I can't understand why it shifts with each level so that the image is no longer centered. You can see that the X component shifts to ...

### FFT equivalent for generalized unitary transforms

The DFT has the FFT, Hadamard transform has the Fast Hadamard Transform and so do a number of other unitary transforms (operators). Is there or has there been an attempt at creating FFT style ...

### Discrete wavelet transform; how to interpret approximation and detail coefficients?

I am trying to understand Wavelet transform. So far I have understood the basic theory of it. But I am not able to get my head around how to interpret both coefficients. I am using PyWavelets ...
