Bayesian nonparametric regression using complex wavelets

  title={Bayesian nonparametric regression using complex wavelets},
  author={Norbert Rem'enyi and Brani Vidakovic},
  journal={arXiv: Methodology},
In this paper we propose a new adaptive wavelet denoising methodology using complex wavelets. The method is based on a fully Bayesian hierarchical model in the complex wavelet domain that uses a bivariate mixture prior on the wavelet coefficients. The heart of the procedure is computational, where the posterior mean is computed through Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulations. We show that the method has good performance, as demonstrated by simulations on the well-known test functions and by…

Denoising Non-stationary Signals by Dynamic Multivariate Complex Wavelet Thresholding

A novel continuous wavelet transform (CWT) dynamically-optimized, multivariate thresholding method that shows improved results when compared to well-known methods, especially for high-frequency signal rich time series, typically observed in finance.



Real nonparametric regression using complex wavelets

This work proposes two new complex‐valued wavelet shrinkage techniques: one based on multiwavelet style shrinkage and the other using Bayesian methods, which are both simpler and dramatically faster than its competitors.

Wavelet thresholding via a Bayesian approach

We discuss a Bayesian formalism which gives rise to a type of wavelet threshold estimation in nonparametric regression. A prior distribution is imposed on the wavelet coefficients of the unknown

Wavelet Estimators in Nonparametric Regression: A Comparative Simulation Study

This paper discusses in detail wavelet methods in nonparametric regression, where the data are modelled as observations of a signal contaminated with additive Gaussian noise, and provides an extensive review of the vast literature of wavelet shrinkage and wavelet thresholding estimators developed to denoise such data.

Nonlinear shrinkage estimation with complex Daubechies wavelets

This work is motivated by a Bayesian approach and is based on the complex representation of signals by the Symmetric Daubechies Wavelets, and applications for two dimensional signals are discussed.

Nonlinear wavelet shrinkage with Bayes rules and Bayes factors

A wavelet shrinkage by coherent Bayesian inference in the wavelet domain is proposed and the methods are tested on standard Donoho-Johnstone test functions.

Empirical Bayes selection of wavelet thresholds

A key feature appears to be that the estimate of sparsity adapts to three different zones of estimation, first where the signal is not sparse enough for thresholding to be of benefit, second where an appropriately chosen threshold results in substantially improved estimation, and third where the signals are so sparse that the zero estimate gives the optimum accuracy rate.

Wavelet Shrinkage using Cross-validation

A modified form of twofold cross-validation is introduced to choose a threshold for wavelet shrinkage estimators operating on data sets of length a power of 2.

Wavelet analysis and synthesis of fractional Brownian motion

A detailed second-order analysis is carried out for wavelet coefficients of FBM, revealing a stationary structure at each scale and a power-law behavior of the coefficients' variance from which the fractal dimension of F BM can be estimated.

Multivariate Exponential Power Distributions as Mixtures of Normal Distributions with Bayesian Applications

This paper shows that a multivariate exponential power distribution is a scale mixture of normal distributions, with respect to a probability distribution function, when its kurtosis parameter
