# Wavelet Methods for Pointwise Regularity and Local Oscillations of Functions

*St(’)ephane Jaffard; Yves Meyer*

Currently, new trends in mathematics are emerging from
the fruitful interaction between signal processing, image processing,
and classical analysis.

One example is given by “wavelets”, which
incorporate both the know-how of the Calderon-Zygmund school and the
efficiency of some fast algorithms developed in signal processing
(quadrature mirror filters and pyramidal algorithms.)

A second example is “multi-fractal analysis”. The initial
motivation was the study of fully developed turbulence and
the introduction by Frisch and Parisi of the multi-fractal
spectrum. Multi-fractal analysis provides a deeper insight into many
classical functions in mathematics.

A third example—“chirps”—is studied in
this book. Chirps are used in modern radar or sonar technology. Once
given a precise mathematical definition, chirps constitute a powerful
tool in classical analysis.

In this book, wavelet analysis is related to the 2-microlocal spaces
discovered by J. M. Bony. The authors then prove that a wavelet based
multi-fractal analysis leads to a remarkable improvement of Sobolev
embedding theorem. In addition, they show that chirps were hidden in a
celebrated Riemann series.

Features:

- Provides the reader with some basic training in new lines of research.
- Clarifies the relationship between pointwise behavior and size properties of wavelet coefficents.

#### Readership

Graduate students and researchers in mathematics, physics, and engineering who are interested in wavelets.
