Hierarchical graph Laplacian eigen transforms (with J. Irion), Japan SIAM Letters, vol.6, pp.21-24, 2014.


We describe a new transform that generates a dictionary of bases for handling data on a graph by combining recursive partitioning of the graph and the Laplacian eigenvectors of each subgraph. Similar to the wavelet packet and local cosine dictionaries for regularly sampled signals, this dictionary of bases on the graph allows one to select an orthonormal basis that is most suitable to one's task at hand using a best-basis type algorithm. We also describe a few related transforms including a version of the Haar wavelet transform on a graph, each of which may be useful in its own right.

Keywords: Graph Laplacian eigenvectors, Fiedler vectors, spectral graph partitioning, a dictionary of orthonormal bases, wavelet-like transforms on graphs
