Title: Cuntz algebra representations and orthonormal bases

Abstract: A hidden albeit common theme in computational and theoretical harmonic analysis, and engineering is the so-called Cuntz relations which provide the geometric framework for multiresolution and the pyramid algorithms of wavelets. These relations are behind the analysis and synthesis operators used in down and up sampling of signals. These objects have been rediscovered in the 70's by operator theorists in relation to certain properties of C* algebras. The main point of my talk is the connection between representations of the Cuntz C* algebras and existence of orthonormal bases generated by the Cuntz isometries. I will provide examples which recapture classic bases such as the Fourier and Walsh but also more general systems whose properties are interesting in their own.
