# Homework Help: How to reconstruct a signal using the Discrete Haar Wavelet transform?

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Hi, for a project for school, I need to implement the Discrete Haar Wavelet Transform to compress an audio signal. This would be fine and dandy, but I do not really understand how to use the the DHWT. Could anyone direct me towards some resources that would be very helpful in my understanding? If someone could provide a step-by-step algorithm that goes through the deconstruction and reconstruction of the signal, that would be nice. The textbook that I'm using is a math textbook, so it is more interested in proving properties of the filters & wavelets instead giving examples and exercises. This is great, until I actually need to apply it towards something.

2. Relevant equations
I know that there are vector spaces V and W that are orthogonal to each other; V is associated with the scaling function ∅, W is associated with the mother wavelet ψ. I think the first step in the DHWT is to pick a resolution j, but beyond that I don't understand.

Sorry, I had seen that resource and it's much different from what we've done in class.
