Special Functions and Applications of Wavelets

Call for Papers

The wavelet transform is a still actively developing area of the harmonic analysis that is conditioned by both remarkable properties from the point of view of abstract functional analysis and unique opportunities, which wavelets provide for signal processing in natural science and engineering.

One of the recent hot topics in this area is the interplay between wavelets construction and special functions due to the following reasons: solution of partial differential equations and pattern detection in non-Cartesian geometry, analytical, semianalytical, and numerical solutions of integral and integrodifferential equations with special kernels (including an evaluation of integral transforms containing special functions), freedom of choice for the wavelet construction using orthogonal polynomials, which can be adjusted for concrete problems, and so forth. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Construction of wavelet bases and frames using orthogonal polynomials and special functions
  • Continuous and discrete wavelet transforms in special geometries (cylindrical, spherical, and, in general, on manifolds)
  • Numerical solution of differential, integral, integrodifferential equations via wavelet methods
  • Integral transforms containing special functions and wavelet-based methods for their evaluation
  • Applications of wavelet and related multiscale decompositions to physical, biophysical, and engineering problems related to the usage of special functions
