## Abstract

An alternative solution method based on wavelets and the fast wavelet transform is described. The transform at the heart of the algorithm splits a signal into wavelets rather than frequencies that stretch over the whole width of the signal. Some wavelets in a basis set are broad, with only a few required to cover the whole pulse width and correspond to a large scale approximation of the signal. Other wavelets are narrow and only cover a small fraction of the same time interval, and correspond to local, high frequency details in the signal. A strength of this presentation is that only a subset of the possible wavelets are required to adequately describe an optical signal.
