    Abstract

    This paper proposes a new harmonic wavelet transform (HWT) based on13; Discrete Cosine Transform (DCTHWT) and its application for signal or image13; compression and subband spectral estimation using Modified Group Delay (MGD).13; Further, the existing DFTHWT has also been explored for image compression. The13; DCTHWT provides better quality decomposed decimated signals, which enable13; improved compression and MGD processing. For signal/image compression, compared13; to the HWT based on DFT (DFTHWT), the DCTHWT reduces the reconstruction error.13; Compared to DFTHWT for the speech signal considered for a compression factor of13; 0.62, the DCTWHT provides a 30% reduction in reconstruction error. For an image, the13; DCTHWT algorithm due to its real nature, is computationally simple and more accurate13; than the DFTHWT. Further compared to Cohen-Daubechies-Feauveau 9/7 biorthogonal13; symmetric wavelet, the DCTHWT, with its computational advantage, gives a better or13; comparable performance. For an image with 6.25% coefficients, the reconstructed13; image by DFTHWT is significantly inferior in appearance to that by DCTHWT which13; is reflected in the error index as its values are 3.0% and 2.65% respectively.13; For spectral estimation, DCTHWT reduces the bias both in frequency13; (frequency resolution) and spectral magnitude. The reduction in magnitude bias in turn13; improves the signal detectability. In DCTHWT, the improvement in frequency13; resolution and the signal detectability is not only due to good quality DCT subband13; signals but also due to their stretching (decimation) in the wavelet transform. The MGD13; reduces the variance while preserving the frequency resolution achieved by DCT and13; decimation. In view of these, the new spectral estimator facilitates a significant13; improvement both in magnitude and frequency bias, variance and signal detection13; ability; compared to those of MGD processing of both DFT and DCT fullband and DFT13; subband signals
