This mathematics research project aims to construct tools for signal and image processing.

These tools include smooth, compactly supported orthogonal multidimensional wavelets with other prescribed properties such as near-cardinality, symmetry and more, which are suitable for colour image processing.

Competitive advantage

  • World-first construction of multidimensional wavelets
  • Application of novel techniques from Clifford analysis that are unknown to most researchers in signal and image processing
  • Advanced techniques from optimisation theory


  • University of New Mexico, USA
  • University of Goettingen, Germany
  • Technical University of Munich, Germany


  • Potential for improved treatment (especially compression) of colour images
  • Potential for improved performance of higher-dimensional quadrature and approximation

Capabilities and facilities

  • High-performance computing facilities
  • High-end capabilities in pure, applied and computational harmonic analysis
  • International network of collaborators
