Wavelet image scattering

Use the `waveletScattering2`

object to create a framework for a
wavelet image scattering decomposition using complex-valued 2-D Morlet
wavelets.

creates a framework
for a wavelet image scattering decomposition with two complex-valued 2-D Morlet filter
banks and isotropic scale invariance. Both filter banks have quality factors of one
wavelet per octave. There are six rotations linearly spaced between 0 and π radians for
each wavelet filter. By default, `sf`

= waveletScattering2`waveletScattering2`

assumes an image
input size of 128-by-128. The scale invariance is 64.

creates a framework for wavelet image scattering with properties specified by one or more
`sf`

= waveletScattering2(`Name,Value`

)`Name,Value`

pair arguments. Properties can be specified in any order
as `Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN`

. Enclose each property name in single
quotes (`' '`

) or double quotes (`" "`

).

**Note**

With the exceptions of `OptimizePath`

and
`OversamplingFactor`

, you cannot change a property value of an
existing scattering framework. For example, if you create a framework
`sf`

with `ImageSize`

set to ```
[256
256]
```

, you cannot assign a different `ImageSize`

to
`sf`

.
