# Daubechies wavelet - scaling and wavelet function in MATLAB

• MATLAB
Hi everybody,

I'm trying to reproduce daubechies basic building graph and daubechies wavelet function graph (φ(r)=0 if r≦0 or 3≦r). And i found this algorithm. I would appreciate if there is anybody could help me to understand the function defined below as function [s,w] = cascade(n,cs,cw). Especially how does the convolution takes place. Thank you in advance.

>%Filter coefficients for daub4 (h<->scaling, g<->wavelet)
>h = [1+sqrt(3) 3+sqrt(3) 3-sqrt(3) 1-sqrt(3)]/(4*sqrt(2));
>g = [h(4) -h(3) h(2) -h(1)];
>
>%Calculate 5 iterations of the cascade algorithm

>plot(s); %Plot scaling function
>plot(w); %Plot wavelet function
