{{#category_index:H|Hilbert-transform technique}} A technique for determining the phase of a minimum-phase function from its power spectrum, used in computing a deconvolution operator. Given the power spectrum P(f) and that the wavelet is minimum phase, the wavelet's frequency-domain representation W(f) is


The amplitude A(f) is the square root of the power spectrum. Taking the logarithm of both sides splits the function into real and imaginary parts:


To be minimum phase, the function must be analytic in the lower half-plane. Then the Hilbert transform can be used to find the phase γ(f) from lnP(f)/2:


Since the amplitude and phase are known, the Fourier transform can be computed and the time-domain expression for W(t) determined. [1].
