Wavelet transform is a powerful tool for analysing the problems arising in harmonic analysis, signal and image processing, sampling, filtering, and so on. However, they seem to be inadequate for representing those signals whose energy is not well concentrated in the frequency domain. In pursuit of representations of such signals, we propose a novel time-frequency transform coined as quadratic-phase wave packet transform in L^2(R). The proposed transform is aimed at rectifying the conventional wavelet transform by employing a quadratic-phase Fourier transform with extra degrees of freedom. Besides the formulation of all the fundamental results, including the orthogonality relation, reconstruction formula and the characterization of range, we also derive a direct relationship between the well-knownWigner-Ville distribution and the proposed transform. In addition, we study the quadratic-phase wave-packet transform in the framework of almost periodic functions. Finally, we extend the scope of the present work by investigating the composition of quadratic-phase wave packet transforms.
