||Non-separable Wavelet; Tensor-product Wavelet; Image Compression
||The most commonly used wavelets for image processing are the tensor-product of univariate wavelets, which have a disadvantage of giving a particular importance to the horizontal and vertical directions. In this paper, a new class of wavelet, non-separable wavelet, is investigated for image compression applications. The comparative results of image compression preprocessed with two different kinds of wavelet transform are presented: (1) non-separable wavelet transform; (2) tensor-product wavelet transform. The results of our experiments show that in the same vanishing moment, the non-separable wavelets perform better than the tensor-product wavelets in dealing with still images.
