Applications of the Continuous Wavelet Transform to Economic Data

1. From spectral analysis to wavelet analysis

2. The Continuous Wavelet Transform

    a. Wavelet power spectrum
    b. Wavelet filter as a band-pass filter

3. Wavelet bivariate tools

    a. Wavelet cross-spectrum
    b. Wavelet coherency
    c. Wavelet phase difference

4. Wavelet multivariate tools

    a. Wavelet partial and multiple coherency
    b. Wavelet partial phase-difference

5. The wavelet gain: Regressions in the time-frequency domain
