The river - with the sunlight flashing from its dancing wavelets, gilding gold the grey-green beech- trunks, glinting through the dark, cool wood paths, chasing shadows o'er the shallows, flinging diamonds from the mill-wheels, throwing kisses to the lilies, wantoning with the weirs' white waters, silvering moss-grown walls and bridges, brightening every tiny townlet, making sweet each lane and meadow, lying tangled in the rushes, peeping, laughing, from each inlet, gleaming gay on many a far sail, making soft the air with glory - is a golden fairy stream.

The wavelet analysis is a useful tool to interpret multiscale, non-stationary time-series data (27) and well suited for patterns of variability that change with time, such as transient cycles, allowing the identification of not only dominant periods but also their timing in the epidemiological data (28).
The topics include principles and practices of constructing wavelets, the genesis of wavelet transform types and applications, fractals and wavelets in applied geophysics with some examples, applying wavelet transforms to paleo-monsoon data from Speleothems, and Fourier and wavelet implementations in the phase-field modeling of the evolution of solid-solid and solid-liquid boundaries.
Over the past 20 years, the wavelet theory has become one of the emerging and fast-evolving mathematical and signal processing tools for its many distinct merits.
