One of the major drawbacks of orthogonal wavelet transforms is their lack of translation invariance: the content of wavelet subbands is unstable under translations of the input signal. [] Key Method Jointly shiftable transforms that are simultaneously shiftable in more than one domain are explored. Two examples of jointly shiftable transforms are designed and implemented: a 1-D transform that is jointly shiftable in position and scale, and a 2-D transform that is jointly shiftable in position and orientation…

Complex Wavelets for Shift Invariant Analysis and Filtering of Signals

This paper describes a form of discrete wavelet transform, which generates complex coefficients by using a dual tree of wavelet filters to obtain their real and imaginary parts. This introduces

TLDR
This work performs mu-shift-invariance analysis of 2-band orthogonal DWT and of the 2- band dual-tree complex wavelet transform (DT-CWT) and introduces a new notion of shift-Invariance, which is particularly informative for multirate systems that are not shift-invarial in the strict sense.

Multidimensional, mapping-based complex wavelet transforms

Although the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is a powerful tool for signal and image processing, it has three serious disadvantages: shift sensitivity, poor directionality, and lack of phase

A new framework for complex wavelet transforms

TLDR
Two-stage mapping-based complex wavelet transforms that consist of a mapping onto a complex function space followed by a DWT of the complex mapping to create a directional, non-redundant, complexWavelet transform with potential benefits for image coding systems.

A Directional Extension for Multidimensional Wavelet Transforms

Directional information is an important and unique feature of multidimensional signals. As a result of a separable extension from one-dimensional (1-D) bases, multidimensional wavelet transforms have

Translation-Invariant DeNoising

De-Noising with the traditional (orthogonal, maximally-decimated) wavelet transform sometimes exhibits visual artifacts; we attribute some of these – for example, Gibbs phenomena in the neighborhood

A directional, shift insensitive, low-redundancy, wavelet transform

TLDR
This work projects the wavelet coefficients from Selesnick's shift-insensitive, double-density wavelet transform so as to separate approximately the positive and negative frequencies, thereby increasing directionality and shows that the new transform achieves state-of-the-art performance in a seismic image-processing application.

Orthogonal Pyramid Transforms For Image Coding.

TLDR
A set of pyramid transforms that decompose an image into a set of basis functions that are spatial frequency tuned, orientation tuned, spatially localized, and self-similar are described, leading to a pyramid representation in which all of the basis functions have the same basic shape, and appear at many scales.

TLDR
It is shown that the difference of information between the approximation of a signal at the resolutions 2/sup j+1/ and 2/Sup j/ can be extracted by decomposing this signal on a wavelet orthonormal basis of L/sup 2/(R/sup n/), the vector space of measurable, square-integrable n-dimensional functions.

Subband coding of images

A simple yet efficient extension of this concept to the source coding of images by specifying the constraints for a set of two-dimensional quadrature mirror filters for a particular frequency-domain partition and showing that these constraints are satisfied by a separable combination of one-dimensional QMF's.

An alternative projection algorithm is described that reconstructs a signal from azero-crossing representation, which is stabilized by keeping the value of the wavelet transform integral between each pair of consecutive zero-crossings.

It is demonstrated that the Hermite transform is in better agreement with human visual modeling than Gabor expansions, and therefore the scheme is presented as an analysis/resynthesis system.

The Laplacian Pyramid as a Compact Image Code

A technique for image encoding in which local operators of many scales but identical shape serve as the basis functions, which tends to enhance salient image features and is well suited for many image analysis tasks as well as for image compression.

TLDR
It is shown that, by concentrating on more specific patterns, the coding efficiency can be increased since fewer coefficients have to be coded, and sufficient descriptive power can be maintained for approximating the most interesting features in natural images.

Detecting and localizing edges composed of steps, peaks and roofs

TLDR
A two-dimensional version of the approach is developed which has the property of being able to represent multiple edges at the same location and determine the orientation of each to any desired precision, which permits junctions to be localized without rounding.
