Abstract
Wavelets are ill suited to represent oscillatory patterns: rapid variations of intensity can only
be described by the small scale wavelet coefficients. These diffused coefficients carry very little
energy, and are often quantized to zero, even at high bit rates. Our goal in this paper is to provide
a fast numerical implementation of the best wavelet packet algorithm [8] in order to demonstrate
that an advantage can be gained by constructing a basis adapted to a target image. Emphasis
in this paper has been placed on developing algorithms that are computationally efficient. We
developed a new fast 2­D convolution­decimation algorithm with factorized non­separable 2­D
