The Meyer wavelet is an orthogonal wavelet proposed by Yves Meyer. It is infinitely differentiable with infinite support and defined in frequency domain in terms of function as:


There are many different ways for defining this auxiliary function, which yields variants of the Meyer wavelet. For instance, another standard implementation adopts

Spectrum of the Meyer wavelet.

The Meyer scale function is given by:

Meyer scale function.

In the time-domain, the waveform of the Meyer mother-wavelet has the shape as shown in the following figure:

In 2015, Victor Vermehren Valenzuela and H. M. de Oliveira gave the explicitly expressions of Meyer wavelet and scale functions:
