15-859E Programming Assignment 3:
Wavelet Image Compression

Due Date: 11:59pm Mon. 2 Nov. 1998

Revision 3: 30 Oct. 98.

In this assignment, you'll implement simple Haar wavelet image compression. Image and signal compression is one of the most important applications of wavelets. The primary reference is the Stollnitz book, chapters 2 and 3.

Earlier, I said that the assignment would be variational surface modeling, but that appeared too involved for the short time we have, so I settled on this simpler assignment.
