Composite Wavelet Transforms: Applications and
Ilham A. Aliev, Boris Rubin, Sinem Sezer, and Simten B. Uyhan
ABSTRACT. We introduce a new concept of the so-called composite wavelet
transforms. These transforms are generated by two components, namely, a
kernel function and a wavelet function (or a measure). The composite wavelet
transforms and the relevant Calder6n-type reproducing formulas constitute a
unified approach to explicit inversion of the Riesz, Bessel, Flett, parabolic and
some other operators of the potential type generated by ordinary (Euclidean)
and generalized (Bessel) translations. This approach is exhibited in the paper.
Another concern is application of the composite wavelet transforms to explicit
inversion of the k-plane Radon transform on lRn. We also discuss in detail a
series of open problems arising in wavelet analysis of Lp-functions of matrix
