One of the aims of wavelet transforms is to provide an easily interpretable visual representation of signals. This is a prerequisite for applications such as selective modifications of signals or pattern recognition. 
Instantaneous parameters extraction via wavelet transform
TLDR
A novel theorem on the wavelet transform and Hilbert transform and applied to extract the instantaneous parameters of energy-limited, real signals shows advantages in both precision and antinoise performance. Expand

Wavelets and signal processing
A simple, nonrigorous, synthetic view of wavelet theory is presented for both review and tutorial purposes. The discussion includes nonstationary signal analysis, scale versus frequency, waveletExpand
ON THE CHOICE OF A WAVELET, AND THE ENERGY AND THE PHASE DISTRIBUTIONS OF THE WAVELET TRANSFORM.
In this paper, we discuss the effect of (a) the choice of a wavelet and (b) the nature of the signal on the cross terms that exist in the energy distribution of the Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT)Expand

The scaling and delay features of the continuous wavelet transform occur naturally in the radar problem. It is shown how the classical matched filtering approach employed in radar processing isExpand
Application of the wavelet transform to biomedical signals
TLDR
This paper presents an application of the wavelet transform to biological signals and shows the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of the molecule and its properties. Expand
Application of the Wavelet Transform to the Analysis of Propagation Data
TLDR
The Microwaves Laboratory has been involved for more than ten years in the analysis of propagation data received from a satellite and the Wavelet transform seems to be very powerful to analyse more deeply different types of propagation events. Expand
An Overview of Wavelet Based Multiresolution Analyses
TLDR
The definition of a multiresolution analysis is given and how wavelets fit into it is shown and the essentials of two major applications are outlined: data compression and compression of linear operators. Expand
New wavelet transform normalization to remove frequency bias
A new wavelet transform normalization procedure is proposed for the construction of a weighted bank of correlation filters. The standard normalization results in lower input frequencies producingExpand

Wavelet Transforms and Edge Detection
TLDR
This work uses the technique of wavelet transforms to detect discontinuities in the n-th derivative of a function of one variable to describe this function across a range of scales. Expand
Analysis of Sound Patterns through Wavelet transforms

TLDR
Two different procedures for effecting a frequency analysis of a time-dependent signal locally in time are studied and the notion of time-frequency localization is made precise, within this framework, by two localization theorems. Expand
