I am master student doing research in data mining, i read a paper about wavlet analysis for data mining, so i think it may help me in the future. But in my undergraduate degree the last course in mathematics was linear algebra, not higher than that. So i did not take Fourier analysis nor mathematical analysis, so what you suggest on me? Do you have a good books for my level?

  1. http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Wavelet-Analysis-David-Walnut/dp/0817639624
  2. http://www.amazon.com/Wavelet-Analysis-Scalable-Structure-Information/dp/038798383X/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_y

These are good books.

Also, some pdfs below :-

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you so much, so do you i almost remember linear algebra! I hope introduction wavelet analysis will be good put in mind i don't know Fourier analysis too! So what about the second book? is't good for computer science and it's easy ? $\endgroup$ – Mohammad Ahmed Mar 15 '15 at 12:51
  • $\begingroup$ @MohammadAhmed The first book is highly recommended; it'll teach you everything you need (Even Fourier Analysis). The second book is a bit difficult; read that after the first book. ( I.e. read this first: amazon.com/dp/0817639624/?tag=stackoverfl08-20 ) $\endgroup$ – Kugelblitz Mar 15 '15 at 12:57
  • $\begingroup$ Also, welcome to Math StackExchange! Hope you have a wonderful time sir! $\endgroup$ – Kugelblitz Mar 15 '15 at 12:58
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you so much, i will keep using this group. So do you think according to my level ( almost calculus) i can understand the first book? Do you think it will be useful for me in computer science (data mining)? $\endgroup$ – Mohammad Ahmed Mar 15 '15 at 13:16
  • $\begingroup$ You might want to learn calculus first; for references without much calculus you should use the pdfs. The first book needs one to calculus... so if you want to buy the book, then please do so only after having learnt calculus. $\endgroup$ – Kugelblitz Mar 15 '15 at 13:21
