Abstract

Wavelets have a wide range of useful functions that permit them to effectively treat problems such as data compression, scale-localization analysis, feature extraction, visualization, statistics, numerical simulation, and communication. We discuss their features and their use in an integrated manner to handle large-scale problems in earthquake physics and other nonlinear problems in the solid earth geosciences.
