# intwave

Integrate wavelet function psi (ψ)

## Syntax

[INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname',PREC)
[INTDEC,XVAL,INTREC] = intwave('wname',PREC)
[INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname',PREC)
[INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname',PREC,0)
[INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname')
[INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname',8)
intwave('wname',IN2,IN3), PREC = max(IN2,IN3)
intwave('wname',0)
intwave('wname',8,IN3)
intwave('wname')
intwave('wname',8)

## Description

[INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname',PREC) computes the integral, INTEG, of the wavelet function ψ (from −∞ to XVAL values): for x in XVAL.

The function ψ is approximated on the 2PREC points grid XVAL where PREC is a positive integer. 'wname' is a string containing the name of the wavelet ψ (see wfilters for more information).

Output argument INTEG is a real or complex vector depending on the wavelet type.

For biorthogonal wavelets,

[INTDEC,XVAL,INTREC] = intwave('wname',PREC) computes the integrals, INTDEC and INTREC, of the wavelet decomposition function ψdec and the wavelet reconstruction function ψrec.

[INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname',PREC) is equivalent to [INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname',PREC,0).

[INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname') is equivalent to [INTEG,XVAL] = intwave('wname',8).

When used with three arguments intwave('wname',IN2,IN3), PREC = max(IN2,IN3) and plots are given.

When IN2 is equal to the special value 0, intwave('wname',0) is equivalent to intwave('wname',8,IN3).

intwave('wname') is equivalent to intwave('wname',8).

intwave is used only for continuous analysis (see cwt for more information).

## Examples

```% Set wavelet name.
wname = 'db4';

% Plot wavelet function.
[phi,psi,xval] = wavefun(wname,7);
subplot(211); plot(xval,psi); title('Wavelet');

% Compute and plot wavelet integrals approximations
[integ,xval] = intwave(wname,7);
subplot(212); plot(xval,integ);
title(['Wavelet integrals over [-Inf x] ' ...
'for each value of xval']);
