# dddtree

Dual-tree and double-density 1-D wavelet transform

## Syntax

## Description

returns the `wt`

= dddtree(`typetree`

,`x`

,`level`

,`fdf`

,`df`

)`typetree`

discrete wavelet transform (DWT) of the 1-D input
signal, `x`

, down to level, `level`

. The wavelet transform
uses the decomposition (analysis) filters, `fdf`

, for the first level and the
analysis filters, `df`

, for subsequent levels. Supported wavelet transforms
are the critically sampled DWT, double-density, dual-tree complex, and dual-tree double-density
complex wavelet transform. The critically sampled DWT is a filter bank decomposition in an
orthogonal or biorthogonal basis (nonredundant). The other wavelet transforms are oversampled
filter banks.

uses
the filters specified in `wt`

= dddtree(`typetree`

,`x`

,`level`

,`fname1`

,`fname2`

)`fname1`

for the first
stage of the dual-tree wavelet transform and the filters specified
in `fname2`

for subsequent stages of the dual-tree
wavelet transform. Specifying different filters for stage 1 is valid
and necessary only when `typetree`

is `'cplxdt'`

or `'cplxdddt'`

.

## Examples

### Complex Dual-Tree Wavelet Transform

Obtain the complex dual-tree wavelet transform of the noisy Doppler signal. The FIR filters in the first and subsequent stages result in an approximately analytic wavelet as required.

Use `dtfilters`

to create the first-stage Farras analysis filters and 6-tap Kingsbury Q-shift analysis filters for the subsequent stages of the multiresolution analysis.

`df = dtfilters('dtf1');`

The Farras and Kingsbury filters are in `df{1}`

and `df{2}`

, respectively. Load the noisy Doppler signal and obtain the complex dual-tree wavelet transform down to level 4.

load noisdopp; wt = dddtree('cplxdt',noisdopp,4,df{1},df{2});

Plot an approximation based on the level-four approximation coefficients.

xapp = dddtreecfs('r',wt,'scale',{5}); plot(noisdopp) hold on plot(cell2mat(xapp),'r','linewidth',3) axis tight

Using the output of `dtfilters`

, or the filter name itself, in `dddtree`

is preferable to manually entering truncated filter coefficients. To demonstrate the negative impact on signal reconstruction, create truncated versions of the Farras and Kingsbury analysis filters. Display the differences between the truncated and original filters.

Faf{1} = [0 0 -0.0884 -0.0112 0.0884 0.0112 0.6959 0.0884 0.6959 0.0884 0.0884 -0.6959 -0.0884 0.6959 0.0112 -0.0884 0.0112 -0.0884 0 0]; Faf{2} = [ 0.0112 0 0.0112 0 -0.0884 -0.0884 0.0884 -0.0884 0.6959 0.6959 0.6959 -0.6959 0.0884 0.0884 -0.0884 0.0884 0 0.0112 0 -0.0112]; af{1} = [ 0.0352 0 0 0 -0.0883 -0.1143 0.2339 0 0.7603 0.5875 0.5875 -0.7603 0 0.2339 -0.1143 0.0883 0 0 0 -0.0352]; af{2} = [0 -0.0352 0 0 -0.1143 0.0883 0 0.2339 0.5875 -0.7603 0.7603 0.5875 0.2339 0 -0.0883 -0.1143 0 0 0.0352 0]; max(max(abs(df{1}{1}-Faf{1})))

ans = 2.6792e-05

max(max(abs(df{1}{2}-Faf{2})))

ans = 2.6792e-05

max(max(abs(df{2}{1}-af{1})))

ans = 3.6160e-05

max(max(abs(df{2}{2}-af{2})))

ans = 3.6160e-05

Obtain the complex dual-tree wavelet transform down to level 4 using the truncated filters. Take the inverse transform and compare the reconstruction with the original signal.

```
wt = dddtree('cplxdt',noisdopp,4,Faf,af);
xrec = idddtree(wt);
max(abs(noisdopp-xrec))
```

ans = 0.0024

Do the same using the filter name. Confirm the difference is smaller.

wt = dddtree('cplxdt',noisdopp,4,'dtf1'); xrec = idddtree(wt); max(abs(noisdopp-xrec))

ans = 2.1893e-07

### Double-Density Wavelet Transform

Obtain the double-density wavelet transform of a signal with two discontinuities. Use the level-one detail coefficients to localize the discontinuities.

Create a signal consisting of a 2-Hz sine wave with a duration of 1 second. The sine wave has discontinuities at 0.3 and 0.72 seconds.

N = 1024; t = linspace(0,1,1024); x = 4*sin(4*pi*t); x = x - sign(t - .3) - sign(.72 - t); plot(t,x) xlabel('Time (s)') title('Original Signal') grid on

Obtain the double-density wavelet transform of the signal. Reconstruct an approximation based on the level-one detail coefficients by first setting the lowpass (scaling) coefficients equal to 0. Plot the result. Observe features in the reconstruction align with the signal discontinuities.

wt = dddtree('ddt',x,1,'filters1'); wt.cfs{2} = zeros(1,512); xrec = idddtree(wt); plot(t,xrec,'linewidth',2) set(gca,'xtick',[0 0.3 0.72 1]) set(gca,'xgrid','on')

### First-Level Detail Coefficients Approximation — Complex Dual-Tree

Obtain the complex dual-tree wavelet transform of a signal with two discontinuities. Use the first-level detail coefficients to localize the discontinuities.

Create a signal consisting of a 2-Hz sine wave with a duration of 1 second. The sine wave has discontinuities at 0.3 and 0.72 seconds.

N = 1024; t = linspace(0,1,1024); x = 4*sin(4*pi*t); x = x - sign(t - .3) - sign(.72 - t); plot(t,x) xlabel('Time (s)') title('Original Signal') grid on

Obtain the dual-tree wavelet transform of the signal, reconstruct an approximation based on the level-one detail coefficients, and plot the result.

wt = dddtree('cplxdt',x,1,'FSfarras','qshift06'); wt.cfs{2} = zeros(1,512,2); xrec = idddtree(wt); plot(t,xrec,'linewidth',2) set(gca,'xtick',[0 0.3 0.72 1]) set(gca,'xgrid','on')
