### Abstract

This paper is concerned with the efficient evaluation of nonlinear expressions of wavelet expansions obtained through an adaptive process. In particular, evaluation covers here the computation of inner products of such expressions with wavelets which arise, for instance, in the context of Galerkin or Petrov Galerkin schemes for the solution of differential equations. The central objective is to develop schemes that facilitate such evaluations at a computational expense exceeding the complexity of the given expansion, i.e., the number of nonzero wavelet coefficients, as little as possible. The following issues are addressed. First, motivated by previous treatments of the subject, we discuss the type of regularity assumptions that are appropriate in this context and explain the relevance of Besov norms. The principal strategy is to relate the computation of inner products of wavelets with compositions to approximations of compositions in terms of possibly few dual wavelets. The analysis ...
