In contrast, the maximum-delay concept is a relative one, because a wavelet is a maximum-delay wavelet with respect to its length. In our example, the wavelet (0.25, 0.5, 1, 2) is the maximum-delay four-length wavelet of the suite. By delaying this wavelet by one time unit, we obtain the wavelet (0, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2), which is the maximum-delay five-length wavelet of the suite. Similarly, (0, 0, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2) is the maximum-delay six-length wavelet of the suite, and so forth. All the other wavelets of the suite - that is, the wavelets other than the minimum-delay wavelet and the maximum-delay wavelets - are mixed-delay wavelets.
