Wavelets Here are several links to various sites for papers and tutorials on wavelets and their applications.

Wim Swelden's webpage This page contains a number of papers on wavelets by the creator of the "lifting" method. His papers on that method are highly recommended.

Michael Unser's webpage This page contains a number of papers on wavelets by a major contributor to biomedical and image processing applications.

David Donoho's webpage This page contains a number of papers on wavelets by one of the creators of the "wavelet shrinkage" signal denoising method. His papers on that method are highly recommended. His latest work is on generalizations of wavelets, such as "ridgelets" and "curvelets." Richard Baraniuk's webpage This page contains a number of papers on wavelets by one of the creators of the "Hidden Markov Tree" signal denoising method. His papers on this method are highly recommended.

Victor Wickerhauser's webpage This page contains a number of papers on wavelets by the creator of the "best basis" method of signal approximation. His papers on acoustic compression are highly recommended.

Eero Simoncelli's webpage This page contains a number of papers on wavelets in image processing. He is one of the creators of the method of "steerable wavelets", which are very useful in image processing.

Wavelet Digest A free, electronic newsletter with the latest information on wavelets. The best source for the latest developments in the field.Rice University DSP group This page contains many excellent papers, software, and various links, on wavelets and signal processing, and on signal processing in general.

Other links A variety of links to wavelet info (part of the Wavelet Digest site).

Image Processing Sheila Hemami's webpage This page contains a number of papers on wavelets in image processing. Lots of interesting papers on relation between wavelets and human visual system, video coding, error correcting in image transmission, etc. Eero Simoncelli's webpage This page contains a number of papers on wavelets in image processing. He is one of the creators of the method of "steerable wavelets", which are very useful in image processing.

Field Lab webpage This page contains a number of papers on the human visual system and image processing. Many valuable links. David Mumford's webpage This page contains a papers on statistical modeling of the human visual system and image processing. Xin Li's webpage This page contains a number of papers on image processing, including new methods of image compression, and image enhancement. IEEE Image Processing This page is maintained by the IEEE Journal for image processing, one of the top (if not the top) journals in the field. SPIE This page is maintained by the SPIE organization, a top professional organization in the field of image processing.

Cognitive Science Donald Hoffman's webpage This page contains a number of illustrations of our human visual pcrocessing. Dr. Hoffman is the author of the excellent bookVisual Intelligence.Stephen Grossberg's webpage This page contains some excellent papers on the human visual system, and neural network modeling of attention and its relation to consciousness.Mark Turner's webpage This page contains some excellent papers on metaphor and imagination, and their relation to human thinking.Metaphor Webpage This page contains many links, articles, and software, relating to metaphors and artificial intelligence.

Mathematical LearningHung-Hsi Wu's webpage This page contains many excellent papers on the mathematical reform (from one of its most cogent critics), and other thoughtful papers on mathematical learning. Highly recommended.Anna Sfard's webpage This page contains many some excellent papers on mathematical learning theory and critiques of the NCTM reform efforts."Applications and Misapplications of Cog. Psychol. to Math. Ed." A first-rate paper exposing the poverty of ideas in much of the current mathematics education reform. Available for free downloading. If you are concerned about the direction of the reform movement, then please read this paper.Herbert Wilf's webpage on Math. Ed. This page contains some interesting comments on the value (or lack thereof) of statistical research in math education.

Mathematically Correct Website This website contains a number of fascinating articles related to the debate on how to teach K-12 math (the so-called ``math wars'').

"A Brief History of American K-12 Mathematics Education" This paper contains some interesting history related to the debate on how to teach K-12 math.
