    Jansen, Maarten; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Lavu, Sridhar (2005-07-01)
    Multiresolution triangulation meshes are widely used in computer graphics for representing three-dimensional(3-d) shapes. We propose to use these tools to represent 2-d piecewise smooth functions such as grayscale ...

    Wan, Yi; Nowak, Robert David (2001-01-20)
    In this paper we develop a wavelet-based statistical method for solving linear inverse problems. The Bayesian framework developed here is general enough to treat a wide class of linear inverse problems involving (white ...

    Romberg, Justin; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Kingsbury, Nicholas G. (2000-09-01)
    Multiresolution signal and image models such as the hidden Markov tree (HMT) aim to capture the statistical structure of smooth and singular (textured and edgy) regions. Unfortunately, models based on the orthogonalwavelet ...
  • Multiscale Connection-Level Analysis of Network Traffic 

    Sarvotham, Shriram; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2002-11-01)
    Network traffic exhibits drastically different statistics, ranging from nearly Gaussian marginals and long range dependence at very large time scales to highly non-Gaussian marginals and multifractal scaling on small scales. ...

    Wagner, Raymond; Sarvotham, Shriram; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2005-03-01)
    Though several wavelet-based compression solutions for wireless sensor network measurements have been proposed, no such technique has yet appreciated the need to couple a wavelet transform tolerant of irregularly sampled ...

    Willett, Rebecca; Nowak, Robert David (2003-08-20)
    The nonparametric density estimation method proposed in this paper is computationally fast, capable of detecting density discontinuities and singularities at a very high resolution, spatially adaptive, and offers near ...
  • Multiscale Edge Grammars for Complex Wavelet Transforms 

    Romberg, Justin; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2001-10-01)
    Wavelet domain algorithms have risen to the forefront of image processing. The power of these algorithms is derived from the fact that the wavelet transform restructures the image in a way that makes statistical modeling ...
