Continuous Wavelet Transform

Computes the continuous wavelet transform with for the (complex-valued) Morlet wavelet.

Keywords
ts
Usage
cwt(input, noctave, nvoice=1, w0=2 * pi, twoD=TRUE, plot=TRUE)
Arguments
input

input signal (possibly complex-valued)

noctave

number of powers of 2 for the scale variable

nvoice

number of scales in each octave (i.e. between two consecutive powers of 2).

w0

central frequency of the wavelet.

twoD

logical variable set to T to organize the output as a 2D array (signal\_size x nb\_scales), otherwise, the output is a 3D array (signal\_size x noctave x nvoice).

plot

if set to T, display the modulus of the continuous wavelet transform on the graphic device.

Details

The output contains the (complex) values of the wavelet transform of the input signal. The format of the output can be

2D array (signal\_size x nb\_scales)

3D array (signal\_size x noctave x nvoice)

Since Morlet's wavelet is not strictly speaking a wavelet (it is not of vanishing integral), artifacts may occur for certain signals.

Value

continuous (complex) wavelet transform
