cwt | R Documentation |

Computes the continuous wavelet transform with for the (complex-valued) Morlet wavelet.

cwt(input, noctave, nvoice=1, w0=2 * pi, twoD=TRUE, plot=TRUE)

`input` |
input signal (possibly complex-valued) |

`noctave` |
number of powers of 2 for the scale variable |

`nvoice` |
number of scales in each octave (i.e. between two consecutive powers of 2). |

`w0` |
central frequency of the wavelet. |

`twoD` |
logical variable set to T to organize the output as a 2D array (signal_size x nb_scales), otherwise, the output is a 3D array (signal_size x noctave x nvoice). |

`plot` |
if set to T, display the modulus of the continuous wavelet transform on the graphic device. |

The time series is padded with zeroes to avoid problems with circular versus linear convolution. This does not affect usage, as the matrix returned has the added columns removed. (JML Sep 29, 2021).

The output contains the (complex) values of the wavelet transform of the input signal. The format of the output can be

2D array (signal_size x nb_scales)

3D array (signal_size x noctave x nvoice)

Since Morlet's wavelet is not strictly speaking a wavelet (it is not of vanishing integral), artifacts may occur for certain signals.
