# Wandering Vectors for Unitary Systems and Orthogonal Wavelets

Share this page
*Xingde Dai; David R. Larson*

This volume concerns some general methods for the analysis of those
orthonormal bases for a separable complex infinite dimensional Hilbert
space which are generated by the action of a system of unitary
transformations on a single vector, which is called a complete
wandering vector for the system. The main examples are the
orthonormal wavelet bases. Topological and structural properties of
the set of all orthonormal dyadic wavelets are investigated in this
way by viewing them as complete wandering vectors for an affiliated
unitary system and then applying techniques of operator algebra and
operator theory.

Features:

- describes an operator-theoretic perspective on wavelet theory that is accessible to functional analysts
- describes some natural generalizations of standard wavelet systems
- contains numerous examples of computationally elementary wavelets
- poses many open questions and directions for further research

This book is particularly accessible to operator theorists and operator algebraists who are interested in a functional analytic approach to some of the pure mathematics underlying wavelet theory.

#### Readership

Research mathematicians, engineers and graduate students interested in functional analysis and/or wavelet theory; computer scientsts.
