Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Multiresolution transforms have been used with great effectiveness in many areas of astronomical image processing. Here we seek to extend their applicability in two directions. Firstly, we use such transforms to detect objects in fields containing point sources, or a mixture of point sources and large, extended objects. Secondly, we discuss the efficient transfer of (compressed) images using current World-Wide Web technology.
