Abstract: Let be a compactly supported refinable function in such that the shifts of are stable and for a -periodic trigonometric polynomial . A wavelet function can be derived from by . If is an orthogonal refinable function, then it is well known that generates an orthonormal wavelet basis in . Recently, it has been shown in the literature that if is a -spline or pseudo-spline refinable function, then always generates a Riesz wavelet basis in . It was an open problem whether can always generate a Riesz wavelet basis in for any compactly supported refinable function in with stable shifts. In this paper, we settle this problem by proving that for a family of arbitrarily smooth refinable functions with stable shifts, the derived wavelet function does not generate a Riesz wavelet basis in . Our proof is based on some necessary and sufficient conditions on the -periodic functions and in such that the wavelet function , defined by , generates a Riesz wavelet basis in .
