Abstract:
We discuss the approximation of formula6 by exponentials in order to apply it to the treatment of formula8. In the case of a wavelet basis, one has in addition the vanishing moment property, which allows to add polynomials without increasing the computational effort. This leads to the question whether an approximation of formula6 by the sum of a polynomial and an exponential part yields an improvement. We show that indeed the approximation error is remarkably reduced. The improvement depends on the interval on which formula6 is approximated.
