### Abstract

We discuss a Bayesian formalism which gives rise to a type of wavelet threshold estimation in non-parametric regression. A prior distribution is imposed on the wavelet coefficients of the unknown response function, designed to capture the sparseness of wavelet expansion common to most applications. For the prior specified, the posterior median yields a thresholding procedure. Our prior model for the underlying function can be adjusted to give functions falling in any specific Besov space. We establish a relation between the hyperparameters of the prior model and the parameters of those Besov spaces within which realizations from the prior will fall. Such a relation gives insight into the meaning of the Besov space parameters. Moreover, the established relation makes it possible in principle to incorporate prior knowledge about the function's regularity properties into the prior model for its wavelet coefficients. However, prior knowledge about a function's regularity properties might b...

The latter functions are of statistical interest because they allow for better models of spatial inhomogeneity (e.g. =-=Meyer, 1992-=-; Donoho & Johnstone, 1995). The Besov norm for the function g is related to a sequence space norm on the wavelet coefficients of the function. As noted in Section 2.1, confining attention to the reso... |

Donoho & Johnstone (1995) proposed a SureShrink thresholding which is based on minimizing Stein's unbiased risk estimate (=-=Stein, 1981-=-) and will usually yield smaller thresholds than the VisuShrink method. They have shown that SureShrink is also asymptotically near-minimax and the computational effort of the overall procedure is O(n... |

The traditional Bayes rule considered in the literature (=-=Vidakovic, 1994-=-; Clyde et al., 1995; Chipman et al., 1997) corresponds to an L 2 -loss (the posterior mean) based on the wavelet coefficients. However, such a rule is not a thresholding rule but a shrinkage. In orde... |
