Abstract: Wavelets are generated from refinable functions by using multiresolution analysis. In this paper we investigate the smoothness properties of multivariate refinable functions in Sobolev spaces. We characterize the optimal smoothness of a multivariate refinable function in terms of the spectral radius of the corresponding transition operator restricted to a suitable finite dimensional invariant subspace. Several examples are provided to illustrate the general theory.
