Learned basis functions ('learned') and corresponding power spectra for M=3, 4 and 6 bands, along with a standard 9/7 biorthogonal wavelet ('standard'). Each column shows a different band, while each row shows a different level. The lone basis function in the last row is the scaling function (twice convolved with itself). The power spectra are plotted in the 2D-Fourier plane (vertical vs. horizontal spatial-frequency) with the maximum spatial-frequency at the Nyquist rate.
