In my opinion, the application of wavelets to texture discrimination is
_not_ straightforward, and wouldn't neccessarily be my first port of
call (for texture features); yet, see the article by Unser (1995), which
should give an up-to-date literature survey. The articles by Stollnitz
et al (1995), are fairly accessible. BTW NB. the typo. on p. 78 (part I)
the eqn. should read

psi_i^j := psi(2^j-i), i=0,...

The Castleman (1996) book give a fairly complete account.


author="E.J. Stollnitz and T.D. DeRose and D.H. Salesin",
title="Wavelets for computer graphics: a primer, Part 1",
journal= "IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications",
author="E.J. Stollnitz and T.D. DeRose and D.H. Salesin",
title="Wavelets for computer graphics: a primer, Part 2",
journal= "IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications",
author="O. Rioul and M. Vetterli",
title="Wavelets and Signal Processing",
journal= "IEEE Signal Processing Magazine",
author="M. Unser",
title="Texture Classification and Segmentation using wavelet frames",
journal= "IEEE Trans. on Image Processing",

author = "K.R. Castleman",
title = "Digital Image Processing",
publisher = "Prentice Hall",
year = "1996",
OPTedition = "3rd."

I've attempted to cross-post this to sci.image.processing -- I hope you
don't mind.

Hope this helps.
