De-noising or compression using wavelet packets



wpdencmp is a one- or two-dimensional de-noising and compression oriented function.

wpdencmp performs a de-noising or compression process of a signal or an image, using wavelet packet. The ideas and the procedures for de-noising and compression using wavelet packet decomposition are the same as those used in the wavelets framework (see wden and wdencmp for more information).

'wname',CRIT,PAR,KEEPAPP) returns a de-noised or compressed version XD of input signal X (one- or two-dimensional) obtained by wavelet packets coefficients thresholding.

The additional output argument TREED is the wavelet packet best tree decomposition (see besttree for more information) of XD. PERFL2 and PERF0 are L2 energy recovery and compression scores in percentages.

PERFL2 = 100 * (vector-norm of WP-cfs of XD / vector-norm of WP-cfs of X)2.

If X is a one-dimensional signal and 'wname' an orthogonal wavelet, PERFL2 is reduced to

SORH ('s' or 'h') is for soft or hard thresholding (see wthresh for more information).

Wavelet packet decomposition is performed at level N and 'wname' is a string containing the wavelet name. Best decomposition is performed using entropy criterion defined by string CRIT and parameter PAR (see wentropy for more information). Threshold parameter is also PAR. If KEEPAPP = 1, approximation coefficients cannot be thresholded; otherwise, they can be.

[XD,TREED,PERF0,PERFL2] = wpdencmp(TREE,SORH,CRIT,PAR,KEEPAPP) has the same output arguments, using the same options as above, but obtained directly from the input wavelet packet tree decomposition TREE (see wpdec for more information) of the signal to be de-noised or compressed.

In addition if CRIT = 'nobest' no optimization is done and the current decomposition is thresholded.
