S2DW CODE Steerable scale discretised wavelets on the sphere ---------------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION The S2DW code provides functionality to perform the scale discretised wavelet transform on the sphere developed in our paper: Exact reconstruction with directional wavelets on the sphere. Routines are provided to compute wavelet and scaling coefficients from the spherical harmonic coefficients of a signal on the sphere and to synthesise the spherical harmonic coefficients of the original signal from its wavelet and scaling coefficients. The reconstruction of the spherical harmonic coefficients of the original signal is exact to numerical precision. Typically, maximum reconstruction errors are of the order 10^(-12) or smaller. Please see our paper for further details of the wavelet transform and a discussion of typical reconstruction errors and execution times of this implementation. VERSION Release 1.1 AUTHORS J. D.
