Abstract: We analyze representations of the Baumslag Solitar group

$\displaystyle BS(1,N)=\langle u,t\,\vert\,utu^{-1}=t^N\rangle$

that admit wavelets and show how such representations can be constructed from a given low-pass filter. We describe the direct integral decomposition for some examples and derive from it a general criterion for the existence of solutions for scaling equations. As another application, we construct a Fourier transform for some Hausdorff measures.
