Abstract: Let $ \phi$ be a compactly supported refinable function in $ L_2(\mathbb{R})$ such that the shifts of $ \phi$ are stable and $ \hat\phi(2\xi)=\hat a(\xi)\hat \phi(\xi)$ for a $ 2\pi$-periodic trigonometric polynomial $ \hat a$. A wavelet function $ \psi$ can be derived from $ \phi$ by $ \hat \psi(2\xi):=e^{-i\xi}\overline{\hat a(\xi+\pi)} \hat \phi(\xi)$. If $ \phi$ is an orthogonal refinable function, then it is well known that $ \psi$ generates an orthonormal wavelet basis in $ L_2(\mathbb{R})$. Recently, it has been shown in the literature that if $ \phi$ is a $ B$-spline or pseudo-spline refinable function, then $ \psi$ always generates a Riesz wavelet basis in $ L_2(\mathbb{R})$. It was an open problem whether $ \psi$ can always generate a Riesz wavelet basis in $ L_2(\mathbb{R})$ for any compactly supported refinable function in $ L_2(\mathbb{R})$ 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 $ \psi$ does not generate a Riesz wavelet basis in $ L_2(\mathbb{R})$. Our proof is based on some necessary and sufficient conditions on the $ 2\pi$-periodic functions $ \hat a$ and $ \hat b$ in $ C^{\infty}(\mathbb{R})$ such that the wavelet function $ \psi$, defined by $ \hat \psi(2\xi):=\hat b(\xi)\hat \phi(\xi)$, generates a Riesz wavelet basis in $ L_2(\mathbb{R})$.
