Paper Abstract

The 'a trous' algorithm represents a discrete approach to the classical continuous wavelet transform. Similar to the fast wavelet transform the input signal is analyzed by using the coefficients of a properly chosen low-pass filter, but in contradistinction to the latter there follows no concluding decimation step. Examples of practical applications can be found in the field of cosmology for studying the formation of large scale structures of the Universe. In this paper we develop parallel algorithms on different MIMD architectures for the 2D 'a trous' decomposition. We implement the algorithm on several distributed memory architectures using the PVM paradigm and on a SGI POWERChallenge using a parallel version of the C programming language. Finally we investigate experimental results obtained on both of them.
