## The Alpert transform is a multiwavelets transform ...

The Alpert transform is a multiwavelets transform based on orthogonal polynomials. It was originaly designed for the resolution of partial differential and integral equations, since it avoid boundary artifact and can be used with an arbitrary sampling.

A class of bases in L^2 for the sparse representatiion of integral operators,

in SIAM J. Math. Anal. , 24 (1993), 246-262.

The strengh of this transform is that you can transform data sampled irregularly. Of course this algorithm runs in linear time, i. e. O(n). The use of multiwavelets remove any boundary artifact (which are common with wavelet of support > 1, e. g. Daubechies wavelets), but the price to pay is that the wavelets functions are *not* continue, they look like the Haar basis function. So don't use this transform to compress data that will be seen by human eyes (although the reconstruction error can be very low, the reconstructed function can have some ugly steps-like artifacts).

In this toolbox, you can transform a signal (1D, 2D, nD) with arbitrary length and arbitrary sampling (you *must* each time provide a sampling location in a parameter 'pos').

This toolbox can also be used to transform data lying on a manifold

(example of a sphere is included).

The number of vanishing moments (which is also the degree of the polynomial

approximation 1) is set via the parameter 'k' (default=3). You can provide different numbers of vanishing moments for X and Y axis, using k=[kx, ky] (default k=[3, 3]).
