Details and Options

 DiscreteWaveletPacketTransform is a generalization of DiscreteWaveletTransform where the full tree of wavelet coefficients is computed.
 The data can be any of the following:

list arbitraryrank numerical array image arbitrary Image object audio an Audio or sampled Sound object  The resulting wavelet coefficients are arrays of the same depth as the input data.
 The possible wavelet wave include:

 With higher settings for the refinement level r, largerscale features are resolved.
 The default refinement level r is given by , where is the minimum dimension of data.
 With refinement level Full, r is given by .
 The tree of wavelet coefficients at level consists of coarse coefficients and detail coefficients with representing the input data.
