This rule also applies to images. The global variable managed by dwtmode specifies the default extension mode. See dwtmode for extension mode descriptions.

Matlab was used to import and filter the image. The first step is to choose a wavelet type, and a level N of decomposition.

In this case biorthogonal 3.

Wavelet Transform

Biorthogonal discrete wavelet transform dwt are commonly used in image processing to detect and filter white Gaussian noise, [12] due to their high contrast of neighboring pixel intensity values. Using this wavelets a wavelet transformation is performed on the two dimensional image.

Following the decomposition of the image file, the next step is to determine threshold values for each level from 1 to N.


Applying these thresholds are the majority of the actual filtering of the signal. The wavelet is obtained from the scaling function as N where N is an even integer.

Discrete wavelet transform

The set of wavelets then forms an orthonormal basis which we use to decompose the signal. Note that usually only few of the coefficients ak are nonzero, which simplifies the calculations. In the following discrete wavelet transform dwt, some wavelet scaling functions and wavelets are plotted.

The most known family of orthonormal wavelets is the family of Daubechies. Her wavelets are usually denominated by the number of nonzero coefficients ak, so we usually talk about Daubechies 4, Daubechies 6, discrete wavelet transform dwt.

Roughly said, with the increasing number of wavelet coefficients the functions become smoother. See the comparison of wavelets Daubechies 4 and 20 below.


Another mentioned wavelet is the simplest one, the Haar wavelet, which uses a box function as the scaling function. Haar scaling function and wavelet left and their frequency content right.

There are several types of implementation of the DWT algorithm. The oldest and most known one is the Mallat pyramidal algorithm.

Discrete wavelet transform - Wikipedia

The result of this algorithm is an array of the same length as the input one, where the data are usually sorted from the largest scales to the smallest ones.

Within Gwyddion the pyramidal algorithm is used for computing the discrete wavelet transform. Discrete wavelet transform in 2D can be discrete wavelet transform dwt using DWT module.

Discrete wavelet transform can be used for easy and fast denoising of a noisy signal. If we take only a limited number of highest coefficients of the discrete wavelet transform spectrum, and we perform an inverse transform with the same wavelet basis we can obtain more or less denoised signal.


There are several ways how to choose the coefficients that will be kept. Within Gwyddion, the universal thresholding, scale adaptive thresholding [ 2 ] and scale and space adaptive thresholding [ 3 ] is implemented.
