Compression of wavelet decompositions Chapter uri icon


  • 2006 by Princeton University Press. All Rights Reserved. We characterize functions with a given degree of nonlinear approximation by linear combinations with n terms of a function , its dilates and their translates. This gives a unified viewpoint of recent results on nonlinear approximation by spline functions and give their extension to functions of several variables. Our approach is formulated in terms of wavelet decompositions.
