- 1. Choose a scaling function
- 2. Find an inner product
- 3. Solve for wavelets

- Translation and scaling doesn’t work
- Example: can’t cleanly map a grid onto a sphere

- Need a more general formulation
- Nested spaces <-> refinable scaling functions
- Inner product

- A coarse-level scaling function may be defined in terms of finer-level scaling functions

- Explicit patching methods
- Smooth
- Integrable
- No refinability

- Subdivision surfaces

- Needed for constructing wavelets orthogonal to scaling functions
- For scaling functions and
- Numerically compute?

- is matrix of inner products at level
- Observations
- Recurrence relation between matrices
- Finite number of distinct entries in matrices

- Result: solve finite-sized linear system for inner product

Our wavelet:

- 1. Select subset of wavelet coefficients
- 2. Add them back to the base mesh
- Selection strategies
- All coefficients >e
- guarantee

- Scalar-based data is stored at vertices
- Treat different fields separately
- Storage
- Decomposition

- “Size” of wavelet coefficient is weighted blend

- Treat different fields separately
- Examples
- 3D data: surface geometry
- Color data: Planetary maps

Original: 32K triangles

- Avoids jumps in shape
- Smoothly blend wavelet additions
- Linear interpolation

- We assume simple base mesh
- Difficult to derive from arbitrary input
