We present a framework to design an orthogonal wavelet with compact support and vanishing moments, tuned to a given application. This is achieved by optimizing a criterion, such that a prototype signal, which is characteristic for the application, becomes sparse in the wavelet domain. This approach is beneficial for compression and detection purposes. A parameterization is developed for which orthogonality and compact support are built in, and in terms of which we can express the vanishing moment conditions conveniently. The ap- proach is developed for critically sampled wavelet transforms as well as for the stationary wavelet transform. Several examples illustrate the methods.
