Abstract—Total variation (TV) is a powerful method that brings great benefit for edgepreserving regularization. Despite being widely employed in image processing, it has restricted applicability for 1D signal processing since piecewiseconstant signals form a rather limited model for many applications. Here we generalize conventional TV in 1D by extending the derivative operator, which is within the regularization term, to any linear differential operator. This provides flexibility for tailoring the approach to the presence of nontrivial linear systems and for different types of driving signals such as spikelike, piecewiseconstant, and so on. Conventional TV remains a special case of this general framework. We illustrate the feasibility of the method by considering a nontrivial linear system and different types of driving signals. Index Terms—Differential operators, linear systems, regularization, sparsity, total variation. I.

Abstract—In this letter, we expand upon the method of Tay et al. for the design of orthonormal “Qshift ” filters for the dualtree complex wavelet transform. The method of Tay et al. searches for good Hilbertpairs in a oneparameter family of conjugatequadrature filters that have one vanishing moment less than the Daubechies conjugatequadrature filters (CQFs). In this letter, we compute feasible sets for one and twoparameter families of CQFs by employing the trace parameterization of nonnegative trigonometric polynomials and semidefinite programming. This permits the design of CQF pairs that define complex wavelets that are more nearly analytic, yet still have a high number of vanishing moments. Index Terms—Complex wavelet, Hilbert pair, orthogonal filter banks, positive trigonometric polynomials.

Abstract—We investigate a subband adaptive version of the popular iterative shrinkage/thresholding algorithm that takes different update steps and thresholds for each subband. In particular, we provide a condition that ensures convergence and discuss why making the algorithm subband adaptive accelerates the convergence. We also give an algorithm to select appropriate update steps and thresholds for when the distortion operator is linear and time invariant. The results in this paper may be regarded as extensions of the recent work by Vonesch and Unser. Index Terms — Deconvolution, fast algorithm, shrinkage, subband adaptive, thresholding, wavelet regularized inverse problem.

Abstract—The 2band discrete wavelet transform (DWT) provides an octaveband analysis in the frequency domain, but this might not be ‘optimal ’ for a given signal. The discrete wavelet packet transform (DWPT) provides a dictionary of bases over which one can search for an optimal representation (without constraining the analysis to an octaveband one) for the signal at hand. However, it is well known that both the DWT and the DWPT are shiftvarying. Also, when these transforms are extended to 2D and higher dimensions using tensor products, they do not provide a geometrically oriented analysis. The dualtree complex wavelet transform (DTCWT), introduced by Kingsbury, is approximately shiftinvariant and provides directional analysis in 2D and higher dimensions. In this paper, we propose a method to implement a dualtree complex wavelet packet transform (DTCWPT), extending the DTCWT as the DWPT extends the DWT. To find the best complex wavelet packet frame for a given signal, we adapt the basis selection algorithm by Coifman and Wickerhauser, providing a solution to the basis selection problem for the DTCWPT. Lastly, we show how to extend the 2band DTCWT to an Mband DTCWT (provided that M = 2 b) using the same method. Index Terms—DualTree Complex Wavelet Transform, wavelet packet.

This paper develops an overcomplete discrete wavelet transform (DWT) based on rational dilation factors for discretetime signals. The proposed overcomplete rational DWT is implemented using selfinverting FIR filter banks, is approximately shiftinvariant, and can provide a dense sampling of the timefrequency plane. A straightforward algorithm is described for the construction of minimallength perfect reconstruction filters with a specified number of vanishing moments; whereas, in the nonredundant rational case, no such algorithm is available. The algorithm is based on matrix spectral factorization. The analysis/synthesis functions (discretetime wavelets) can be very smooth and can be designed to closely approximate the derivatives of the Gaussian function.

Most wavelet transforms used in practice are based on integer sampling factors. Wavelet transforms based on rational sampling factors offer in principle the potential for timescale signal representations having a finer frequency resolution. Previous work on rational wavelet transforms and filter banks includes filter design methods and frequency domain implementations. We present several specific examples of Daubechiestype filters for a discrete orthonormal rational wavelet transform (FIR filters having a maximum number of vanishing moments) obtained using Gröbner bases. We also present the design of overcomplete rational wavelet transforms (tight frames) with FIR filters obtained using polynomial matrix spectral factorization.

This paper describes an approach for decomposing a signal into the sum of an oscillatory component and a transient component. The method uses a newly developed rationaldilation wavelet transform (WT), a selfinverting constantQ transform with an adjustable Qfactor (qualityfactor). We propose that the oscillatory component be modeled as signal that can be sparsely represented using a high Qfactor WT; likewise, we propose that the transient component be modeled as a piecewise smooth signal that can be sparsely represented using a low Qfactor WT. Because the low and high Qfactor wavelet transforms are highly distinct (having low coherence), morphological component analysis (MCA) successfully yields the desired decomposition of a signal into an oscillatory and nonoscillatory component. The method, being nonlinear, is not constrained by the limits of conventional LTI filtering. Keywords: wavelets, sparsity, morphological component analysis, constant Q, Qfactor 1.

Abstract—In this correspondence, we introduce a dualtree rationaldilation complex wavelet transform for oscillatory signal processing. Like the shorttime Fourier transform and the dyadic dualtree complex wavelet transform, the introduced transform employs quadrature pairs of timefrequency atoms which allow to work with the analytic signal. The introduced wavelet transform is a constantQ transform, a property lacked by the shorttime Fourier transform, which in turn makes the introduced transform more suitable for models that depend on scale. Also, the frequency resolution can be as high as desired, a property lacked by the dyadic dualtree complex wavelet transform, which makes the introduced transform more suitable for processing oscillatory signals like speech, audio and various biomedical signals. Index Terms—Rationaldilation wavelet transform, dualtree complex wavelet transform, shorttime Fourier transform, analytic signal, instantaneous freuency estimation. I.
