# dualtree2

Kingsbury Q-shift 2-D dual-tree complex wavelet transform

## Description

`[`

returns the 2-D dual-tree complex wavelet transform (DTCWT) of `A`

,`D`

] = dualtree2(`X`

)`X`

using
Kingsbury Q-shift filters. The output `A`

is the matrix of real-valued
final-level scaling (lowpass) coefficients. The output `D`

is a
*L*-by-1 cell array of complex-valued wavelet coefficients, where
*L* is the level of the transform. For each element of
`D`

there are six wavelet subbands.

The DTCWT is obtained by default down to level
`floor(log`

, where _{2}(min([*H*
*W*])))*H* and *W*
refer to the height (row dimension) and width (column dimension) of `X`

,
respectively. If any of the row or column dimensions of `X`

are odd,
`X`

is extended along that dimension by reflecting around the last row
or column.

By default, `dualtree2`

uses the near-symmetric biorthogonal wavelet
filter pair with lengths 5 (scaling filter) and 7 (wavelet filter) for level 1 and the
orthogonal Q-shift Hilbert wavelet filter pair of length 10 for levels greater than or equal
to 2.

`[___] = dualtree2(`

specifies additional options using name-value pair arguments. For example,
`X`

,`Name,Value`

)`'LevelOneFilter','antonini'`

specifies the (9,7)-tap Antonini filter as
the biorthogonal filter to use in the first-level analysis.
