Quasi-Orthogonality and Quasi-Projections
Applied and Computational Harmonic Analysis, vol. 3, no. 3, pp. 201-214, July 1996.
Our main concern in this paper is the design of simplified filtering procedures for the quasi-optimal approximation of functions in subspaces of L 2 generated from the translates of a function φ(x). Examples of signal representations that fall into this framework are Schoenberg's polynomial splines of degree n, and the various multiresolution spaces associated with the wavelet transform. After a brief review of the relation between the order of approximation of the representation and the concept of quasi-interpolation (Strang-Fix conditions), we investigate the implication of these conditions on the various basis functions and their duals (vanishing moment and quasi-interpolation properties). We then introduce the notion of quasi-duality and show how to construct quasi-orthogonal and quasi-dual basis functions that are much shorter than their exact counterparts. We also consider the corresponding quasi-orthogonal projection operator at sampling step h and derive asymptotic error formulas and bounds that are essentially the same as those associated with the exact least-squares solution. Finally, we use the idea of a perfect reproduction of polynomials of degree n to construct short kernel quasi-deconvolution filters that provide a well-behaved approximation of an oblique projection operator.
