Quadrature mirror filter (QMF) conditions.


(QMF conditions) For MATH we define $m_{0}$ as in the proposition ( Scaling equation ). Then MATH "is QMF" provided that both of the following are true:

(a) MATH ,

(b) MATH .


(QMF property 1) Let MATH and $g_{k}$ defined by the formula ( Definition of g_k ), $m_{0}$ is defined by MATH and $G,H$ are defined in ( Approximation and detail operators 3 ). Then the following statements are equivalent:

(a) MATH ,

(b) MATH ,

(c) MATH ,

(d) MATH .


MATH We calculate MATH We use the proposition ( Parseval equality ). MATH MATH MATH Now scale $z$ from MATH to $\left[ 0,1\right] $ and use the proposition ( Fourier series on unit interval ).


MATH and MATH . The proof is repeated application of the proposition ( Interaction of approximation and detail operators with Fourier transform ).


(QMF property 2) Let MATH is QMF and $g_{k}$ defined by the formula ( Definition of g_k ) then

(a) MATH ,

(b) $\sum_{k}g_{k}=0$ ,

(c) MATH ,

(d) MATH ,

(e) MATH ,

(f) MATH ,

(g) MATH .


By the condition ( QMF conditions )-(a) MATH and MATH hence (a).

We have MATH

By the condition ( QMF conditions ), MATH We substitute $z=0$ into the last result and obtain (b).

The (c) is equivalent to (b), see the remark below.

The (d),(e),(f) and (g) are consequences of the proposition ( QMF property 1 ) and definitions ( Approximation and detail operators 3 ).


The statements of the proposition ( QMF property 2 ) have the following interpretation in terms of $L^{2}$ -geometry.

(a). MATH $\Leftrightarrow$ MATH .

(b). $\sum_{k}g_{k}=0$ $\Leftrightarrow$ MATH .

(c). $\sum_{k}g_{k}=0$ $\Rightarrow$ MATH .

(d). MATH $\Leftrightarrow$ MATH .

(e). if MATH then MATH $\Leftrightarrow$ MATH .

(f). MATH $\Leftrightarrow$ MATH

(g). MATH $\ \Leftrightarrow$ MATH $\ \Leftrightarrow$ MATH $\ \Leftrightarrow$ MATH .


We will be using results of the section ( Fourier analysis in Hilbert space ) and the properties of scale and transport from the section ( Elementary definitions of wavelet analysis ) without further notice.

We prove (a): MATH

We prove (b) with the same calculation as (a): MATH

We prove (c): MATH hence MATH

To prove (d) we calculate MATH MATH The cases (e) and (f) are similar to (d). (g) is a collection of previous statements.
