Wavelets and the Lifting Scheme: a 5 Minute Tour

  title={Wavelets and the Lifting Scheme: a 5 Minute Tour},
  author={Wim Sweldens},
The purpose of this paper is to give a very short, \nuts and bolts", introduction to the lifting scheme and provide references for further reading. The lifting scheme is a new method for constructing biorthogonal wavelets. The main di erence with classical constructions [1-3] is that it does not rely on the Fourier transform. This way lifting can be used to construct second generation wavelets, wavelets which are not necessarily translates and dilates of one function. The latter we refer to as… CONTINUE READING
