This paper examines the class of generalized Morse wavelets, which are eigenfunction wavelets suitable for use in time-varying spectrum estimation via averaging of time-scale eigenscalograms. Generalized Morse wavelets of order k (the corresponding eigenvalue order) depend on a doublet of parameters (/spl beta/, /spl gamma/); we extend results derived for the special case /spl beta/ = /spl gamma/ = 1 and include a proof of "the resolution of identity." The wavelets are easy to compute using the…

Higher-Order Properties of Analytic Wavelets
TLDR
Wavelet behavior is found to be strongly impacted by the degree of asymmetry of the wavelet in both the frequency and the time domain, as quantified by the third central moments.
Generalized Morse Wavelets as a Superfamily of Analytic Wavelets
The generalized Morse wavelets are shown to constitute a superfamily that essentially encompasses all other commonly used analytic wavelets, subsuming eight apparently distinct types of analysis
On the Design of Optimal Analytic Wavelets
TLDR
Investigation of the generalized Morse wavelets reveals a remarkably broad range of behavior, and suggests that these wavelets can be considered as a generic analytic wavelet family appropriate for a variety of applications.

TLDR
A deterministic signal plus random noise model for the recorded data is described and it is shown that for (a,b) in a domain Ω, the phase between components of the original multi–component signal can be approximate via the estimated phase of the component of the first right–singular vector.
Multiple Multidimensional Morse Wavelets
TLDR
A set of operators that localize a radial image in space and radial frequency simultaneously are defined and it is demonstrated that the latter operator, given an appropriate choice of localization region, approximately has the same radial eigenfunctions as the radial operator.
Multiple Multidimensional Morse Wavelets Statistics Section Technical Report TR-05-02 October 18 , 2007
We define a set of operators that localise a radial image in radial space and radial frequency simultaneously. We find the eigenfunctions of this operator and thus define a non-separable orthogonal
A Statistical Analysis of Morse Wavelet Coherence
TLDR
This work considers the case of wavelet coherence calculated from discrete-time complex-valued and stationary time series, and finds that, if estimated using multiple orthogonal Morse wavelets, wavelets are in fact amenable to statistical study.
On the Analytic Wavelet Transform
An exact and general expression for the analytic wavelet transform of a real-valued signal is constructed, resolving the time-dependent effects of nonnegligible amplitude and frequency modulation.
A statistical study of wavelet coherence for stationary and nonstationary processes
The coherence function measures the correlation between a pair of random processes in the frequency domain. It is a well studied and understood concept, and the distributional properties of

Spectrum estimation and harmonic analysis
In the choice of an estimator for the spectrum of a stationary time series from a finite sample of the process, the problems of bias control and consistency, or "smoothing," are dominant. In this

A class of signals B/sub w/( mu ) concentrated with respect to an operator W is introduced, and a best n-dimensional approximating subspace for this class is shown to be the space spanned by the n signals most concentrated withrespect to the operator defining the class.
