DEFINITION 2.1. Let

q

be a measurable function on !Rn satisfying the following

conditions:

(a) q

E

n

Lr for some r

1;

(b) the least radial decreasing majorant of q is integrable, i.e.

ij(x)

We denote

(2.2)

Qtrd(x)

d~-t(TJ),

where J.t is a finite Borel measure on

[0,

oo). If J.t is a wavelet measure (i.e., 11 has

a certain number of vanishing moments and obeys suitable decay conditions) then

(2.2) will be called the composite wavelet transform of f. The function q will be

called a kernel function and Qt a kernel operator of the composite transform W.

The integral

where a

:2:

0 is a fixed parameter.

The choice of the kernel function q, the wavelet measure J.t, and the parameter

a

:2:

0 are in our disposal. This feature makes the new transform convenient in

applications.

2.2. Calderon's identity.

An

analog of Calderon's reproducing formula for

Waf is given by the following theorem.

THEOREM 2.2. Let J.t be a finite Borel measure on [0, oo) satisfying
