Continuous Wavelet Transform. Time-frequency localization method with a wavelet kernel correlating against signal across scales and translations. Is non-orthogonal and overcomplete (unlike Discrete WT), varies time & frequency resolution across scales (unlike STFT), and is invertible. Usage includes image compression, multi-resolution analysis, instantaneous frequency estimation, transient detection, feature extraction.
