Title and abstract for Colloquium:
Wavelets, with Image processing applications for Art History

with signals, data and operators. The talk will review the basics of
wavelets and their mathematical properties; in a second part, we will
visit some recent applications of wavelets and image processing to
help understand art works, their manufacture process and their state of
