One of the main aims of this paper is to bridge the gap between two branches of mathematics, special functions and wavelets. This is done by showing how special functions can be used to construct orthonormal wavelet bases in a multiresolution analysis setting. The construction uses hypergeometric functions of one and two variables and a generalization of the latter, known as Kampé de Fériet functions. The mother wavelets constructed by this process are entire functions given by rapidly converging power series that allow easy and fast numerical evaluation. Explicit representation of wavelets facilitates, among other things, the study of the analytic properties of wavelets.
