appear on the homotopy of multiresolutions, approximation theory, the spectrum and structure of the fixed points of the associated transfer, subdivision operators; Key topics of wavelet theory are examined; Excellent graphics show how wavelets depend on the spectra of the transfer operators; The important role of the spectrum of a transfer operator is studied; This self-contained book deals with important applications to signal processing, communications engineering, computer graphics algorithms, qubit algorithms and chaos theory.
