We propose a new method for (global) Hurst exponent determination based on wavelets. Using this method, we analyze synthetic data with predefined Hurst exponents, fracture surfaces and data from economy. The results are compared with those obtained from Fourier spectral analysis. When many samples are available, the wavelet and Fourier methods are comparable in accuracy. However, when one or only a few samples are available, the wavelet method outperforms the Fourier method by a large margin. 
Wavelet Analysis of Geophysical Time Series
Wavelet analysis has emerged as a potential tool for spectral analysis due to the time-frequency localization which makes it suitable for complex and nonstationary signals. In this paper, the
LOW-OSCILLATION COMPLEX WAVELETS
TLDR
The authors believe that low oscillation complex wavelets have wide applicability to other practical signal analysis problems, and their possible application to two such problems is discussed briefly—the interrogation of arrhythmic ECG signals and the detection and characterization of coherent structures in turbulent flow fields.
An Optimized Algorithm for the Evaluation of Local Singularity Exponents in Digital Signals
TLDR
This work shows that a recently patented algorithm allows obtaining precise, meaningful values of singularity exponents at every point in the image by the use of a discretized combinatorial mask, which is an extension of a particular wavelet basis.
Wavelet-based estimators of scaling behavior
TLDR
The WTMM estimator turns out to be a very competitive estimator which can be further generalized to characterize multiscaling behavior and compared with the detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) estimator, which was previously proved to be among the best estimators which are not wavelet-based estimators.
WAVELET-BASED MULTISCALING IN SELF-AFFINE RANDOM MEDIA
TLDR
It is shown that the filtered media can be used for transferring information along scales and that a wavelet-based approach for determining the underlying Hurst exponent is highly efficient.
Analysis of the geomagnetic activity of the D st index and self-affine fractals using wavelet transforms
Abstract. The geomagnetic activity of the Dst index is analyzed using wavelet transforms and it is shown that the Dst index possesses properties associated with self-affine fractals. For example, the
Influence of a discontinuity on the spectral and fractal analysis of one-dimensional data
Abstract. The analysis of a data area or segment containing steep transitions between regions with different textures (for example a cloud and its background) leads to addressing the problem of
