Summary: There are standard modifications of certain compactly supported wavelets that yield orthonormal bases on a bounded interval. We extend one such construction to those wavelets, such as `coiflets' that may have fewer vanishing moments than had to be assumed previously. Our motivation lies in function estimation in statistics. We use these boundary-modified coiflets to show that the discrete wavelet transform of finite data from sampled regression models asymptotically provides a close approximation to the wavelet transform of the continuous Gaussian white noise model. In particular, estimation errors in the discrete setting of computational practice need not be essentially larger than those expected in the continuous setting of statistical theory.
