ABSTRACT

In the present paper, we obtain asymptotic expansion of the wavelet transform for large value of dilation parameter a by using López technique. Asymptotic expansion of Shannon wavelet, Morlet wavelet and Mexican Hat wavelet transform are obtained as special cases.

Keywords:

Asymptotic Expansion, Wavelet Transform, Mellin Convolution, Integral Transform

1. Introduction

The continuous wavelet transform of a function h with respect to the wavelet is defined as

(1)

provided the integral exists [1] . The asymptotic expansion for Mellin convolution

(2)

was proposed by López [2] , under dyadic conditions on g and h. Let us remind earlier results from [2] , which will be used in present study. We assume that and have asymptotic expansions of the form:

(3)

and

(4)

Also assume that

(5)

and

(6)

with the parameters, , and satisfying the following conditions:

(7)

The asymptotic expansion of (2) at the origin is given by the following Theorem ( [2] , pp. 631, 633, 634).

Theorem 1 Assume that (i) and are locally integrable on; (ii) and have expansions of the form (3), (5) and (4), (6) respectively and (iii), , and satisfy (7), then the asym- ptotic expansion of (2) as are given by

Case I: For any and with, we have

(8)

Case II: For any and with, we have

(9)

Case III: For any and with, we have

(10)

By using Wong technique, the asymptotic expansions of wavelet transform (1) for large and small values of dilation parameters and translation, parameters were obtained by Pathak and Pathak 2009 [3] -[5] .

The main aim of the present paper is to derive asymptotic expansion of the wavelet transform for large value of a, by using Theorem 1. We also obtain asymptotic expansions for the special transforms corresponding to Shannon wavelet, Morlet wavelet and Mexican hat wavelet.

2. Asymptotic Expansion of the Wavelet Transform for Large Value of a

In this section, we obtain asymptotic expansion of the wavelet transform (1), when.

Now, let us rewrite (1) in the form:

(11)

where, and b is assumed to be a fixed real number.

Setting and assume that and are locally integrable on. Further as-

sume that and have asymptotic expansions of the form

(12)

(13)

Also assume that

(14)

and

(15)

with the parameters, , and satisfy the following condition

(16)

Then by using, Theorem 1, we obtain asymptotic expansion of for large value of a.

Case I: When and with, we have

(17)

Case II: When and with, we have

(18)

Case III: When and with, we have

(19)

Similarly, we can also obtain the asymptotic expansion of as.
