Combining an informal interview and an introductory-level lecture on wavelets, this DVD makes an excellent classroom enrichment tool, as well as fascinating viewing for those interested in this cutting-edge topic. The interview portion contributes an engaging personal flavor as Daubechies covers some of the most important applications of wavelets. She also discusses how she became interested in mathematics and the challenges of balancing a family and a demanding career. In the lecture, Daubechies, one of the world's leading experts in wavelets, describes some of the important developments in the theory. Starting from basic definitions and presenting a clear and well-paced lecture, Daubechies makes the subject accessible to undergraduate mathematics majors.
