Differentiable and GPU enabled fast wavelet transforms in JAX.


  • 1d analysis and synthesis transforms are implemented in src/jaxlets/
  • 2d analysis and synthesis transforms are part of the src/jaxlets/ module.


To install jax, head over to and follow the procedure described there. Afterwards type pip install jaxwt to install the Jax-Wavelet-Toolbox.


The documentation is available at: .

Transform Example:

import pywt
import numpy as np;
import jax.numpy as jnp
import jaxwt as jwt
# generate an input of even length.
data = jnp.array([0., 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0])
wavelet = pywt.Wavelet('haar')

# compare the forward fwt coefficients
print(pywt.wavedec(np.array(data), wavelet, mode='zero', level=2))
print(jwt.wavedec(data, wavelet, mode='zero', level=2))

# invert the fwt.
print(jwt.waverec(jwt.wavedec(data, wavelet, mode='zero', level=2), wavelet))


Unit tests are handled by tox. Clone the repository and run it with the following:

$ pip install tox
$ git clone
$ cd Jax-Wavelet-Toolbox
$ tox


  • In the spirit of jax the aim is to be 100% pywt compatible. Whenever possible, interfaces should be the same results identical.

64-Bit floating point numbers

To allow 64-bit precision numbers, a jax config flag must be set as shown below:

from jax.config import config
config.update("jax_enable_x64", True)
