This volume is designed as a textbook for an introductory course on wavelet analysis and time-frequency analysis aimed at graduate students or advanced undergraduates in science and engineering. It can also be used as a self-study or reference book by practicing researchers in signal analysis and related areas. Since the expected audience is not presumed to have a high level of mathematical background, much of the needed analytical machinery is developed from the beginning. The only prerequisites for the first eight chapters are matrix theory, Fourier series, and Fourier integral transforms. Each of these chapters ends with a set of straightforward exercises designed to drive home the concepts just covered, and the many graphics should further facilitate absorption.

"I wholeheartedly recommend this book for a solid and friendly introduction to wavelets, for anyone who is comfortable with the mathematics required of undergraduate electrical engineers. The book's appeal is that it covers all the fundamental concepts of wavelets in an elegant, straightforward way. It offers truly enjoyable (friendly!) mathematical exposition that is rich in intuitive explanations, as well as clean, direct, and clear in its theoretical developments. I found Kaiser's straightforward end-of-chapter exercises excellent...Kaiser has written an excellent introduction to the fundamental concepts of wavelets. For a book of its length and purpose, I think it should be essentially unbeatable for a long time." —Proceedings of the IEEE "It is well produced and certainly readable...This material should present no difficulty for fourth-year undergraduates...It also will be useful to advanced workers in that it presents a different approach to wavelet theory from the usual one." —Computing Reviews "I found this to be an excellent book. It is eminently more readable than the books...which might be considered the principal alternatives for textbooks on wavelets." —Physics Today "This volume is probably the most gentle introduction to wavelet theory on the market. As such, it responds to a significant need. The intended audience will profit from the motivation and common-sense explanations in the text. Ultimately, it may lead many readers, who may not otherwise have been able to do so, to go further into wavelet theory, Fourier analysis, and signal processing." —SIAM Review "The first half of the book is appropriately named. It is a well-written, nicely organized exposition...a welcome addition to the literature. The second part of the book introduces the concept of electromagnetic wavelets...This theory promises to have many other applications and could well lead to new ways of studying these topics. This book has a number of unique features which...makes it particularly valuable for newcomers to the field." —Mathematical Reviews "The book is indeed what its title promises: A friendly guide to wavelets...In short, Kaiser's book is excellently written and can be considered as one of the best textbooks on this topic presently available...it will enjoy wide distribution among mathematicians and physicists interested in wavelet analysis." —Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten "I loved 'A Friendly Guide to Wavelets'. I advised it to my graduate students." —Yves Meyer, Université Paris-DauphineSynopsis:
This volume is intended to serve as a textbook for a one-term introductory course on wavelet analysis. It includes the following chapters: windowed Fourier transforms; algebraic construction of Daubechies' wavelets bases; and regulatory and vanishing moments.
