Wavelet Definitions

Morlet Wavelet

Both non-analytic and analytic Morlet wavelets are supported. The analytic Morlet wavelet, 'morl', is defined in the Fourier domain by:

Ψ^(sω)=π1/4e(sωω0)2/2U(sω)

where U(ω) is the Heaviside step function.

The non-analytic Morlet wavelet, 'morlex', is defined in the Fourier domain by:

Ψ^(sω)=π1/4e(sωω0)2/2

'morl0' defines a non-analytic Morlet wavelet in the Fourier domain with exact zero mean:

Ψ^(sω)=π1/4{e(sωω0)2/2eω02/2}

The default value of ω0 is 6.

The scale-to-frequency Fourier factor for the Morlet wavelet is:

4πsω0+2+ω02

m-th Order Derivative of Gaussian Wavelets

In the Fourier domain, the m-th order derivative of Gaussian wavelets, 'dog', is defined by:

Ψ^(sω)=1Γ(m+1/2)(jsω)me(sω)2/2

The derivative must be an even order. The default order of the derivative is 2, which is also known as the Mexican hat wavelet.

Because the unit imaginary, j, is always raised to an even power, the Fourier transform is real-valued.

The scale-to-frequency Fourier factor for the DOG wavelet is:

2πsm+12

Paul Wavelet

The Fourier transform of the Paul wavelet, 'paul', of order m is:

Ψ^(sω)=2mm(2m1)!(sω)mesωU(sw)

where U(ω) is the Heaviside step function. The Paul wavelet is analytic.

The scale-to-frequency Fourier factor for the Paul wavelet is:

4πs2m+1

The default order of the Paul wavelet is 4.
