Compactly Supported Curvelet-Type Systems
Publikation: Forskning - peer review › Tidsskriftartikel
We study a flexible method for constructing curvelet-type frames. These curvelet-type systems have the same sparse representation properties as curvelets for appropriate classes of smooth functions, and the flexibility of the method allows us to give a constructive description of how to construct curvelet-type systems with a prescribed nature such as compact support in direct space. The method consists of using the machinery of almost diagonal matrices to show that a system of curvelet molecules which is sufficiently close to curvelets constitutes a frame for curvelet-type spaces. Such a system of curvelet molecules can then be constructed using finite linear combinations of shifts and dilates of a single function with sufficient smoothness and decay.
