ABSTRACT Recently we found a family of nearly orthonormal affine Riesz bases of compact support and arbitrary degrees of smoothness, obtained by perturbing the one-dimensional Haar mother wavelet using B-splines. The mother wavelets thus obtained are symmetric and given in closed form, features which are generally lacking in the orthogonal case. We also showed that for an important subfamily the wavelet coefficients can be calculated in O(n) steps, just as for orthogonal wavelets. It was conjectured by Aldroubi, and independently by the author, that these bases cannot be obtained by a multiresolution analysis. Here we prove this conjecture. The work is divided into four sections. The first section is introductory. The main feature of the second is simple necessary and sufficient conditions for an affine Riesz basis to be generated by a multiresolution analysis, valid for a large class of mother wavelets. In the third section we apply the results of the second section to several examples. In the last section we show that our bases cannot be obtained by a multiresolution analysis.

    ABSTRACT: One of the authors has studied the properties of a family of Riesz bases obtained by perturbing the Haar function using B-splines. Although these bases cannot be obtained by multiresolution analyses, they have other interesting properties. The present paper discusses how a discrete signal can be studied by considering a suitable function so that the existing theory for functions defined over a continuous domain can be applied.

    ABSTRACT: We first characterize the Riesz wavelets which are associated with multiresolution analyses (MRAs) and the Riesz wavelets whose duals are also Riesz wavelets. The characterizations show that if a Riesz wavelet is associated with an MRA, then it has a dual Riesz wavelet. We then improve Wang's characterization for a pair of biorthogonal wavelets to be associated with biorthogonal MRAs by showing that one of the two conditions in his characterization is redundant.

    ABSTRACT: We introduce two generalizations, the first of which generalizes the concept of multiresolution analysis. We define the irregular generalized multiresolution analysis (IGMRA). This structure is defined taking translations on sets that are not necessarily regular lattices, for which certain density requirements are required, and without using dilations, also allows each subspace of IGMRA to be generated by outer frames of translations of different functions. The second generalization concerns the concept of association of wavelets to these new structures. We take frames of translations of a countable set of functions, which we called generalized wavelets, and define the concept of association of these generalized wavelets to those previously defined IGMRA. In the next stage, we prove two existence theorems. In the first theorem, we prove existence of IGMRA, and in the second existence of generalized wavelets associated with it. In the latter, we show that we are able to associate frames of translations with optimal localization properties, to IGMRA. In the last section of this paper, concrete examples of these structures are presented for \({L^2(\mathbb{R})}\) and for \({L^2(\mathbb{R}^2)}\) .
