Wavelet methods have demonstrated considerable success in function estimation through term-by-term
thresholding of the empirical wavelet coe cients. However, it has been shown that grouping the em-
pirical wavelet coe cients into blocks and making simultaneous threshold decisions about all the co-
e cients in each block has a number of advantages over term-by-term wavelet thresholding, including
asymptotic optimality and better mean squared error performance in ˙nite sample situations. An empir-
ical Bayes approach to incorporating information on neighbouring empirical wavelet coe cients into
