A random variable satisfying the random variable dilation equation , where is a discrete random variable independent of with values in a lattice and weights and is an expanding and -preserving matrix, if absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue measure, will have a density which will satisfy a dilation equation

We have obtained necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of the density and a simple sufficient condition for 's existence in terms of the weights Wavelets in can be generated in several ways. One is through a multiresolution analysis of generated by a compactly supported prescale function . The prescale function will satisfy a dilation equation and its lattice translates will form a Riesz basis for the closed linear span of the translates. The sufficient condition for the existence of allows a tractable method for designing candidates for multidimensional prescale functions, which includes the case of multidimensional splines. We also show that this sufficient condition is necessary in the case when is a prescale function.
