Coupling the periodic time-invariance of the wavelet transform with the view of thresholding as a projection yields a simple, re- cursive, wavelet-based technique for denoising signals. Estimating a signal from a noise-corrupted observation is a fundamental prob- lem of signal processing which has been addressed via many tech- niques. Previously, Coifman and Donoho introduced cycle spin- ning, a technique estimating the true signal as the linear average of individual estimates derived from wavelet-thresholded translated versions of the noisy signal. Here, it is demonstrated that such an average can be dramatically improved upon. The proposed algo- rithm recursively "cycle spins" by repeatedly translating and de- noising the input via basic wavelet denoising and then translating back; at each iteration, the output of the previous iteration is used as input. Exploiting the convergence properties of projections, the proposed algorithm can be regarded as a sequence of denoising projections that converge to the projection of the original noisy signal to a small subspace containing the true signal. It is proven that the algorithm is guaranteed to globally converge, and simula- tions on piecewise polynomial signals show marked improvement over both basic wavelet thresholding and standard cycle spinning.
