Abstract

Using the wavelet transform as a basis for calculations of lattice systems yielded an impressive reduction in the computational time required to obtain estimates of thermodynamic properties, at the price of modest errors in accuracy. The wavelet transform provided a systematic approach to coarse-grain systems to any level of resolution. The method produced correct results in the vicinity of fixed attractors.
