Existence of Uncertainty Minimizers for the Continuous Wavelet Transform

by   Simon Halvdansson, et al.

Continuous wavelet design is the endeavor to construct mother wavelets with desirable properties for the continuous wavelet transform (CWT). One class of methods for choosing a mother wavelet involves minimizing a functional, called the wavelet uncertainty functional. Recently, two new wavelet uncertainty functionals were derived from theoretical foundations. In both approaches, the uncertainty of a mother wavelet describes its concentration, or accuracy, as a time-scale probe. While an uncertainty minimizing mother wavelet can be proven to have desirable localization properties, the existence of such a minimizer was never studied. In this paper, we prove the existence of minimizers for the two uncertainty functionals.
