nag_wfilt (c09aac) returns the details of the chosen one-dimensional discrete wavelet filter. For a chosen mother wavelet, discrete wavelet transform type (single-level or multi-level DWT) and end extension method, this function returns the maximum number of levels of resolution (appropriate to a multi-level transform), the filter length, and the number of approximation coefficients (equal to the number of detail coefficients) for a single-level DWT or
the total number of coefficients for a multi-level DWT. This function must be called before any of the one-dimensional discrete transform functions in this chapter.
One-dimensional discrete wavelet transforms (DWT) are characterised by the mother wavelet, the end extension method and whether multiresolution analysis is to be performed. For the selected combination of choices for these three characteristics, and for a given length,
, of the input data array,
, nag_wfilt (c09aac) returns the dimension details for the transform determined by this combination. The dimension details are:
, the maximum number of levels of resolution that that could be computed were a multi-level DWT applied;
, the filter length;
the number of approximation (or detail) coefficients for a single-level DWT or the total number of coefficients generated by a multi-level DWT over
levels. These values are also stored in the communication array icomm
, as are the input choices, so that they may be conveniently communicated to the one-dimensional transform functions in this chapter.
