Dear All I have a problem calculating or rather normalising wavelet transforms calculated via convolution as opposed to the Fast wavelet method. It should be possible to conserve variance under the scale curve when properly normalised. Does anyone have a short notebook with the normalisation ? or Perhaps suggestions as to my problem ? Briefly my method is to have say 1024 points data and 1024 point wavelets (zeropadded) before convolution I normalise the wavelet variance to 1 then convolute the standard way as in the book of Wolfram. After that I sum each scale and normalise as prescribed to form an 'energy spectra' However my results are not the same as the variance. Note I have not forgotten the wavelet constant. Thanks for your time. Any help is appreciated. Best wishes Mark
