# SymletWavelet

represents the Symlet wavelet of order 4.

represents the Symlet wavelet of order n.

# Details • SymletWavelet, also known as "least asymmetric" wavelet, defines a family of orthogonal wavelets.
• is defined for any positive integer n.
• The scaling function ( ) and wavelet function ( ) have compact support length of 2n. The scaling function has n vanishing moments.
• SymletWavelet can be used with such functions as DiscreteWaveletTransform and WaveletPhi, etc.
