Paper Abstract

In previous work, hybrid wavelet packets were introduced as a generalization of wavelet packets in which the choice of quadrature mirror filter (QMF) is selected adaptively within the wavelet packet analysis. This was motivated by the observation that for certain classes of signals, the choice of appropriate QMF is not only signal dependent, but may be scale dependent as well. Best Basis selection was generalized to provide a means of optimizing the representation of a given signal. This method can be viewed as an adaptive partitioning of signal subspaces. In such a scheme it is important to determine a small number of QMFs which will provide some diversity in the partitioning of the subspaces. In the current work, canonical correlations and canonical angles are used to quantify the difference between subspaces spanned by two filter pairs. Preliminary results indicate the utility of this method as a data independent metric for filter comparison.
