## An Error Analysis for the Sampling of Periodic Signals

We analyze the representation of periodic signals in a scaling function basis. This representation is sufficiently general to include the widely used approximation schemes like wavelets, splines and Fourier series representation. We derive a closed form expression for the approximation error in the scaling function representation. The error formula takes the simple form of a Parseval like sum, weighted by an appropriate error kernel. This formula may be useful in choosing the right representation for a class of signals. We also experimentally verify the theory in the particular case of description of closed curves.
