Inverse 2-D lifting wavelet transform


X = ilwt2(AD_In_Place,W)
X = ilwt2(CA,CH,CV,CD,W)
X = ilwt2(AD_In_Place,W,LEVEL)
X = ilwt2(AD_In_Place,W,LEVEL,'typeDEC',typeDEC)
X = ilwt2(CA,CH,CV,CD,W,LEVEL,'typeDEC',typeDEC)


ilwt2 performs a 2-D lifting wavelet reconstruction with respect to a particular lifted wavelet that you specify.

X = ilwt2(AD_In_Place,W) computes the reconstructed matrix X using the approximation and detail coefficients matrix AD_In_Place, obtained by a lifting wavelet decomposition. W is a lifted wavelet name (see liftwave).

X = ilwt2(CA,CH,CV,CD,W) computes the reconstructed matrix X using the approximation coefficients vector CA and detail coefficients vectors CH, CV, and CD obtained by a lifting wavelet decomposition.

X = ilwt2(AD_In_Place,W,LEVEL) or X = ILWT2(CA,CH,CV,CD,W,LEVEL) computes the lifting wavelet reconstruction, at level LEVEL.

X = ilwt2(AD_In_Place,W,LEVEL,'typeDEC',typeDEC) or X = ilwt2(CA,CH,CV,CD,W,LEVEL,'typeDEC',typeDEC) with typeDEC = 'w' or 'wp' computes the wavelet or the wavelet packet decomposition using lifting, at level LEVEL.

Instead of a lifted wavelet name, you may use the associated lifting scheme LS: X = ilwt2(...,LS,...) instead of X = ilwt2(...,W,...).

For more information about lifting schemes, see lsinfo.


% Start from the Haar wavelet and get the

% Add a primal ELS to the lifting scheme.

% Perform LWT at level 1 of a simple image.

If AD_In_Place or cA,cH,cV,cD are obtained from an indexed image analysis or a truecolor image analysis, they are m-by-n matrices or m-by-n-by-3 arrays, respectively.
