## What is Undecimated wavelet transform?

Unlike the discrete wavelet transform (DWT), which downsamples the approximation coefficients and detail coefficients at each decomposition level, the undecimated wavelet transform (UWT) does not incorporate the downsampling operations.

**What is Daubechies wavelet transform?**

The Daubechies wavelets, based on the work of Ingrid Daubechies, are a family of orthogonal wavelets defining a discrete wavelet transform and characterized by a maximal number of vanishing moments for some given support.

**What are mother wavelets?**

A wavelet transform is a linear transformation in which the basis functions (except the first) are scaled and shifted versions of one function, called the “mother wavelet.” If the wavelet can be selected to resemble components of the image, then a compact representation results.

### Are wavelets orthogonal?

An orthogonal wavelet is a wavelet whose associated wavelet transform is orthogonal. That is, the inverse wavelet transform is the adjoint of the wavelet transform. If this condition is weakened one may end up with biorthogonal wavelets.

**Is wavelet transform lossy?**

Wavelet compression can be either lossless or lossy. Using a wavelet transform, the wavelet compression methods are adequate for representing transients, such as percussion sounds in audio, or high-frequency components in two-dimensional images, for example an image of stars on a night sky.

**What is vanishing moments in wavelets?**

The vanishing moments of the wavelet ψ, that is, ∫ R x m ψ x d x = 0 for m = 0 , M − 1 , is equivalent to the fact that polynomials up to degree M − 1, can be expressed exactly as a linear combination of scaling functions, p m x = ∑ n ∈ Z n m ϕ x − n for m = 0, M − 1.
