Suppose there is unitary operator D on ~ such that ~o c DT" o =: ~t and UnD = DU A" for all n E Z d, where A is a d x d matrix with integer envies and A := det(A) ~ 0. Then there is a subset F in *Ill, with r(A - 1 ) vectors, such that UZ'(F) is a Riesz basis of W 0, the orthogonal complement of *1," o in *It 1. The resulting mdtiscale and decomposition relations can be expressed in a Fourier representation by one single equation, in terms of which the duality principle follows easily. These results are a consequence of an extension, to a set of commuting unitary operators, of Robertson's Theorems on wandering subspace for a single unitary operator [24]. Conditions are given in order that UZd(F) is a Riesz basis o fW 0. They are used in the construction of a class of linear spline wavelets on a four-direction mesh. </p><p>Keywords: Hilbert space, commuting unitary operators, Riesz basis, wandering subspaces, multiresolution approximation, duality principle, box splines. </p><p>Subject classification: 41A15, 42C15, 47B37. </p><p>1.

For any vector v ~ R a, let T,, : L2(R a) ---&gt; L2(R a) be def ined by </p><p> LC. Baltzer AG, Science Publishers </p></li><li><p>110 T~I.T. Goodman et al., Wavelet bases </p><p>T , f (x ) := f (x -u ), f E L2(Rd), x E R d. (1.1) </p><p>Let A be a d x d matrix with entries in 7, and det(A) ~ 0, and define DA : L2(R d) L2(R d) by </p><p>OAf(X ) := ( IdetA l ) l l2 f (Ax) , f E L2(Rd), x E R d. (1.2) </p><p>Clearly, DA and T,, are unitary operators on L2(Rd), and T,,DA = DATA,. In particular, if we let Ty = Tel, j = 1 . . . . . d, where e j := (t~y,t)f=l are the standard unit vectors in R d, then T : = (7"1 . . . . . Td) is a d-tuple of commuting unitary operators such that </p><p>TnDA = DA TAn, n E Z a, (1.3) </p><p>where we have used the multi-index notation T n : = TI n~ . . . T~ d, n = (n I . . . . . rid) eZ d. </p><p>Let r be a positive integer. A sequence (Tin)raG z of closed linear subspaces of L2(R d) is called a multiresolution approximation of Lz(R d) of multiplicity r with dilation matrix A if the following conditions hold: </p><p>T, n c Tm+1, m EZ, (1.4) </p><p>U Tm is dense in L2(R a) and A Tm= [0}, (1.5) meZ mel </p><p>fET m :~DAfETm+ 1, mEZ, (1.6) </p><p>f ET m :~ TA- , ,n f ET m, mEZ, nEZ a, (1.7) </p><p>3X = {I . . . . . r] c L2(R d) such that TZ ' (x ) is a Riesz basis of T o, (1.8) </p><p>where T za (X) : = {Tnj : n E 7I d, j = 1 . . . . . r}. If r = 1, the corresponding multi- resolution approximation of L2(R d) will be called simple. Lemari6 and Meyer [17] have constructed the tensor product scaling function o from a one-dimensional multiresolution approximation such that 0 generates a simple multiresolution approximation (~m)m~l of L2(R d) with A = diag(2 . . . . . 2), and TZ~({o}) is an orthonormal basis of To. Furthermore, there are 2 d - 1 functions ~, j ~ {0, 1 }d\{0}, such that </p><p>{llf j(X -- n) : n E 7/d, j E {0, 1}d\{0} } </p><p>is an orthonormal basis for the orthogonal complement ~W'o of To in T1, and </p><p>{2ma/211/j(2mx- n) : m ~ Z ,n E gd, j ~ {0, 1}d\{0}} </p><p>is an orthonormal basis of L2(Rd). </p></li><li><p>T.N.T. Goodman et al., Wavelet bases 111 </p><p>Riemenschneider and Shen [22] have constructed an orthonormal box-spline wavelet basis of L2(R a) for d = 1, 2, 3, using the orthonormalization technique of Mallat [18]. The orthonormal box-spline wavelet basis is a multivariate analogue of the Lemari6 basis [16]. Recently, in an attempt to extend the earlier works of Chui and Wang [3,4], Chui et al. [5], Jia and Micchelli [12], and Riemenschneider and Shen [23] have studied compactly supported non-orthonormal box-spline wavelets. </p><p>Our objective is to study the general setting of wavelet bases for a set of commuting unitary operators in a Hilbert space, and to apply the general theory in the construction of new wavelet bases in L2(Ra). </p><p>Let U = (U1 . . . . . Ud) be an ordered d-tuple of distinct unitary operators on a complex Hilbert space ~ such that Uk,,~ = UiUk, k, j = 1 . . . . . d. We shall use the multi-index notation U== U~I. . .U,~ ~ for m = (ml , ma)~Z d, with the convention that Uj is the identity operator on ~, j = 1 . . . . . d and assume that U m is the identity only if m = 0. </p><p>A closed linear subspace ~ of ~ is called a wandering subspace for U if Um(~g) 1 Un(~g) for all m, n ~ Z d, m ;~ n. Further, if ~ = Y.n~ldUn(~,), then we say that ~ is a complete wandering subspace of ~ for U. We observe that the results of Robertson (theorem 1, corollary and theorem 2 in [24]) on wandering subspaces for a single unitary operator can be easily extended to a set of commuting unitary operators. An analogue of Robertson's results involving non-orthonormal Riesz bases for a single unitary operator is more suitable for application to B-spline wavelets (see [15,3,4]). In section 2, we state results on Riesz bases generated by a set of commuting unitary operators on a finite set of vectors. These are applied in section 3 to the study of wavelet bases in Hilbert space. The general theory is applied, in section 4, in the construction of a linear wavelet on a four-directional mesh in R 2. This example has many desirable features which suggest that it may be more useful than the existing multivariate wavelets. </p><p>Throughout this paper, we shall denote the space of all square-integrable functions on the d-dimensional torus Ra/(2rcZ a) by L2((0, 2~)a), and let Ls2((0, 2n:) a) (respectively, -2 Lms((0, 2a)a)) be the set of all row vectors with s components (respectively, the set of all m x s matrices with entries) in L2((0, 2a)a). </p><p>2.

By Bochner's Theorem on positive definite functions ([25], p. 19), the matrix eDr(O) is positive semi-definite for almost all 0 ~ R a. </p><p>Clearly, U za (Y) is an orthonormal basis of (U zd (Y)) if and only if CDr(0) is the identity matrix for almost all 0 ~ R e. In the general case, let ,q,j(0), j = 1 . . . . . s, be the eigenvalues of ~r(O). Then we have the following characterization of U zd (Y) as a Riesz basis of its closed linear span (U z~ (Y)), which is a multivariate analogue of theorem 2.1 in [15]. </p><p>THEOREM 2.1 </p><p>The set U zd(Y) is a Riesz basis of (UZd(Y)) if and only if there exist positive constants CI and 6"2 such that </p><p>cl - __. c2 (2.3) </p><p>for almost every 0 ~ R a. </p><p>We shall omit the proof, which is essentially the same as that of theorem 2.1 in [15]. </p><p>The process of orthonormalization of a Riesz basis for a set of distinct commuting unitary operators, to produce an orthonormal basis for the same set of operators, can be accomplished by the following variant of the Fuglede-Putnam Theorem. </p><p>THEOREM 2.2 </p><p>Let ~f and ~ be complex Hilbert spaces, and for j = 1 . . . . . d, let Aj : ~ ---) and Bj : ~ ---) ~ be normal operators. If J : ~K --+ ~ is a bounded invertible operator such that Ai J = JBj , j = 1 . . . . . d, then there exists a unitary operator U : ~ ---) such that AjU = UBj, j = 1 . . . . . d. </p><p>The proof is a minor modification of that for the original Fuglede-Putnam Theorem (see [9], solution 192). The operator U is the unitary factor in the polar decomposition of J (see [9], problem 134), and is independent of Aj and Bj , j = 1 . . . . . d. </p></li><li><p>T.N.T.

Then there exists a set I~ c (U z ~(Y)) of cardinality s, such that U zd (I?) is an orthonormal basis of (U za (Y)). </p><p>Proof Let e j, j = 1 . . . . . d, be the standard unit vectors in R a, and let Ej" 12(zd) s </p><p>--~ 12(zd) ~ be the shift operator in the direction of e y defined by </p><p>Eja(n) = a(n - e J), a 12(zd) s, n Z d. </p><p>Then {El . . . . . Ed} is a set of commuting unitary operators on 12(Za) s, and with E := (El . . . . .

By the Fuglede-Putnam Theorem, there exists a unitary operator H : 12(7/a) s --&gt; (U zd (Y)) such that UnH = HE", for all n ~ 7/a. </p><p>Let e be the unit sequence in/2(7/d) such that e(n)= So ,,, n 7/a, and for j = 1 . . . . . s, l e te j := (t~i, ke)~= 1 ~12(7/d) ". Then {Ene j : n 7/a, ) = 1 . . . . . s} isan orthonormal basis of 12(Zd) s. Let 1~ := {He . . . . . HeS}. Then Uzd(Y) is an orthonormal basis of (uZd(Y)). [] </p><p>Now suppose {Yl . . . . .

The </p><p>commutativity o fF and Uj follows by applying F to Ujv in (2.4), and using the fact that U~ . . . . . Ua are commuting unitary operators. [] </p></li><li><p>114 T.N.T.
