The discrete wavelet transform is a numerically efficient algorithm for computing the scaling and wavelet coefficients from samples of the signal. In this lesson you will learn how the discrete wavelet transform obtains the scaling and wavelet coefficients without using the continuous-time scaling and wavelet bases. The availability of the discrete wavelet transform is a key factor in the widespread use of wavelet representations.
