Construction of orthogonal and biorthogonal wavelets as well as redundant wavelet frames will be reviewed. Fast computational wavelet-based algorithms will be outlines and their performance will be compared with Fourier-based algorithms. Various applications of wavelet analysis in speech compression and speech recognition, as well as broader applications in acoustic signal processing including denoising and transient analysis, will be discussed.
