# Defining Your Own Wavelet

You can define wavelets to plug into the wavelet analysis framework by using the correct template. A wavelet wave is of the form , where wfam is the symbol that indicates the wavelet family and args provide any necessary specification.

In order to set wfam as a wavelet family recognized by the system, the property must be set to True, where patt is a pattern that matches acceptable arguments args.

WaveletQ | set to True if the symbol is a user wavelet |

Wavelet initialization property.

Both orthogonal and biorthogonal user wavelets are supported. Orthogonal wavelets are indicated by setting the property and, correspondingly, biorthogonal wavelets are set using the property .

"OrthogonalQ" | set to True if the wavelet is orthogonal |

"BiorthogonalQ" | set to True if the wavelet is biorthogonal |

Wavelet properties.

To compute primal lowpass filter coefficients, the property must be set; here prec indicates the precision of filter coefficients. Similarly, to compute dual lowpass filter coefficients, the property must be set. Both properties and are expected to return a list of the form , where is the index and is the corresponding filter coefficient. If a list of the form is returned, it is assumed that index starts from 0. An error message is generated if the filter coefficients are not numeric and indices are not integers.
