All courses for every first-year Science student will be delivered online this fall. A limited number of students in their second, third and fourth years will return to campus for part of the semester.

AIMS Lab Seminar - Fletcher Gates - Weighted Alpert Wavelets


HH 403

Speaker: Fletcher Gates

Title: Weighted Alpert Wavelets

Abstract: We give a brief overview of one-dimensional Haar and Alpert wavelet bases in Lebesgue measure, then demonstrate how to generalize these constructions to higher dimension and arbitrary measures. In particular we show the difficulties that arise in certain degenerate measures, and give an algorithm for determining the dimension of the wavelet basis in these cases. We also show that these bases can be selected to contain some additional moment vanishing properties.
