## Abstract

The discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is usually carried out by filter bank iteration, however, for a fixed number of zero moments, this does not yield a discrete-time basis that is optimal with respect to time-localization. This paper discusses the implementation and properties of an orthogonal DWT, with two zero moments and with improved time-localization. The basis, is not based on filter bank iteration, instead different filters are used for each scale. For coarse scales, the support of the discrete-time basis functions approaches 2/3 that of the corresponding functions obtained by filter bank iteration. This slantlet basis is piecewise linear and retains the octave-band characteristic. Closed form expressions for the filters are given and improvement in a denoising example is shown. This bases, being piecewise linear, is reminiscent of the slant transform, to which it is compared.
