Nonstationary Wavelets Related to the Walsh Functions


Using the Walsh-Fourier transform, we give a construction of compactly supported nonstationary dyadic wavelets on the positive half-line. The masks of these wavelets are the Walsh polynomials defined by finite sets of parameters. Application to compression of fractal functions are also discussed.
