The Red-Black wavelet transform

The Red-Black wavelet transform

Geert Uytterhoeven,       Adhemar Bultheel

Abstract: We present a new kind of second generation wavelets on a rectangular grid. These wavelets are constructed using a 2D lifting scheme which is based on a red-black blocking scheme. Compared to classical tensor product wavelets on the same grid, these new wavelets show less anisotropy. The performance of the new wavelets was compared to tensor product wavelets in an image denoising application.
