Uniformly stable wavelets on nonuniform triangulations
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we construct linear, uniformly stable, wavelet-like functions on arbitrary triangulations. As opposed to standard wavelets, only local orthogonality is required for the wavelet-like functions. Nested triangulations are obtained through refinement by two standard strategies, in which no regularity is required. One strategy inserts a new node at an arbitrary position inside a triangle and then splits the triangle into three smaller triangles. The other strategy splits two neighbouring triangles into four smaller triangles by inserting a new node somewhere on the edge between the triangles. In other words, non-uniform refinement is allowed in both strategies. The refinement results in nested spaces of piecewise linear functions. The detail-, or wavelet-spaces, are made to satisfy certain orthogonality conditions which locally correspond to vanishing linear moments. It turns out that this construction is uniformly stable in the L∞ norm, independently of the geometry of the original triangulation and the refinements.
