The Institute of Mathematics of the University of Barcelona (IMUB) organizes a workshop on
Wavelets and Applications, July 1-6, 2002 (Barcelona). The Organizing Committee is:
María J. Carro, Joan Cerdà, Joaquim Martín, and Javier Soria.
The course is addressed to graduate students and young researchers not necessarily specialized on wavelets.
There will be four main basic courses:
The workshop will also consist of several specialized lectures related and complementing the above courses. (The workshop Lecture Notes, published by the IMUB, can be downloaded in PDF format.)
The lectures will take place at the Faculty of Mathematics building, located at the downtown campus of the University of Barcelona.
The registration fee is 90 € (EUROS). Due to restrictions in the use of computer laboratories, the number of participants is limited (there will be two laboratory groups, each having two different sessions. See the Programme for more details). The inscription will be done by rigorous date of payment.
With the support of the Spanish Mathematical Society (RSME), the organizers will offer a few grants to cover some of the participants expenses. This money will be awarded directly by the RSME after the workshop.
On Thursday, July 4, there will be an organized tour through Barcelona. This activity is supported by the City Council and it is free for the participants.
On Friday, July 5, we will have a special dinner on the Escola d'Hostaleria de Barcelona.

- Introduction and basic aspects of wavelets theory (Guido Weiss , Washington University) (PDF ).
We begin with a general description of reproducing systems on n dimensional Euclidean space; this will include both the continuous and discrete cases. We then will proceed to give a unified approach for the study of all these collections. The first goal will be to present a theorem that characterizes all such systems. Particular special cases are wavelets (in all dimensions, finitely generated, with very general dilations), Gabor systems and Gabor-like systems, the frame versions of these systems and others that are more general. Many concrete examples will be constructed. Other topics that are related to this that will be discussed are: shift invariant subspaces, connectivity properties of these systems, oversampling.
- Wavelets and probability (Richard Gundy, Rutgers University) (PDF ).
In these lectures, we want to illustrate some connections between wavelet analysis and probability. The emphasis will be in the direction from probability to wavelet analysis, rather than the other way. At this point, we have two principal topics in mind:
- Wavelets and numerical methods (Claudio Canuto and Anita Tabacco, Politecnico di Torino) (PDF, Slides 1, Slides 2, Slides 3 ).
The theory, design and application of wavelets will be discussed in the course with emphasis on computer-based laboratory use. Topics to be discussed and demonstrated are multiresolution analysis; design of different wavelet types; image compression and signal denoising. The course consists of a lecture session followed by two hand-on PC-based laboratory sessions.
