Paper Abstract

In this paper, a number of spatial/spatial-frequency image representations are reviewed. Wavelets have recently generated much interest, both in applied areas as well as in more theoretical ones. Wavelet transform relative to some basic wavelets provides a flexible time- frequency window which automatically narrows when observing high frequency phenomena and widens when studying low frequency environments. As a result, it is suitable for visual information representation. Applications in computer vision such as image compression and image enhancement are examined.
