General Information

  • This website provides source code for two-channel wavelet transforms on graphs.

Source Code


  • The code is written in Matlab(c) version R2011a.
  • To install the code, simply unpack the directory in a Matlab folder.

How to run demos

  • Demo 1 implements a 2-dimensional graph-QMF filterbank on an 8-connected graph-formulation of any 2D digital image.
    • For a K-level wavelet-tree decomposition, the algorithm automatically crops the input image into a square image of size multiple of 2^K.
    • The output is graph wavelet-coefficients ordered in the image format as shown

(any caption)

    • To run the demo, execute any of the following commands:

1 filterbanks on a default image and parameters

  [wav_coeffs] = QMF_filterbank_demo_1();

2 filterbanks on a given image

  filename = 'sample1.jpg';
  filetype = 'jpeg';
  [wav_coeffs] = QMF_filterbank_demo_1(filename,filetype);

3 filterbanks on a given image with optional parameters

  opt = struct('max_level',3,'filterlen',20,'nnz_factor',1);
  filename = 'sample1.jpg';
  filetype = 'jpeg';
  [wav_coeffs] = QMF_filterbank_demo_1(filename,filetype,opt);
  % where max_level is the number of decomposition level, 
  % filterlen is length of approximated FIR Meyer kernel
  % nnz_factor is the fraction of non-zero high-pass coefficients used in reconstruction
  • Demo 2 implements a 2-dimensional graph-QMF filterbank on the Minnesota traffic graph.
    • To run the demo, execute in Matlab
  [wav_coeffs, channel_info] = QMF_filterbank_demo_2();
  % where wav_coeffs are the output wavelet coefficients ordered as a vector
  % channel_info(i).name is the name of subband, 
  % channel_info(i).nodes is the set of indices of wavelet coefficients in the ith subband.
