Paper Abstract

Signal decomposition techniques are an important tool for analyzing nonstationary signals. The proper selection of time-frequency basis functions for the decomposition is essential to a variety of signal processing applications. The discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is increasingly being used for signal analysis, but not until recently has attention been paid to the time-frequency resolution property of wavelets. This paper describes additional results on our procedure to design wavelets with better time-frequency resolution. In particular, our optimal duration-bandwidth product wavelets (ODBW) have better duration-bandwidth product, as a function of wavelet-defining filter length N, than Daubechies' minimum phase and least- asymmetric wavelets, and Dorize and Villemoes' optimum wavelets over the range N equals 8 to 64. Some examples and comparisons with these traditional wavelets are presented.
