# naginterfaces.library.wav.dim2_​init¶

naginterfaces.library.wav.dim2_init(wavnam, wtrans, mode, m, n)[source]

dim2_init returns the details of the chosen two-dimensional discrete wavelet filter. For a chosen mother wavelet, discrete wavelet transform type (single-level or multi-level DWT) and end extension method, this function returns the maximum number of levels of resolution (appropriate to a multi-level transform), the filter length, the total number of approximation, horizontal, vertical and diagonal coefficients and the number of coefficients in the second dimension for the single-level case. This function must be called before any of the two-dimensional transform functions in this module.

Notes

Two-dimensional discrete wavelet transforms (DWT) are characterised by the mother wavelet, the end extension method and whether multiresolution analysis is to be performed. For the selected combination of choices for these three characteristics, and for given dimensions () of data matrix , dim2_init returns the dimension details for the transform determined by this combination. The dimension details are: , the maximum number of levels of resolution that would be computed were a multi-level DWT applied; , the filter length; the total number of approximation, horizontal, vertical and diagonal coefficients (over all levels in the multi-level DWT case); and , the number of coefficients in the second dimension for a single-level DWT. These values are also stored in the communication array [‘icomm’], as are the input choices, so that they may be conveniently communicated to the two-dimensional transform functions in this module.
