There exist a lot of continuous nowhere differentiable functions, but these functions do not have the same irregularity. Hölder continuity, and more precisely Hölder exponent, allow to quantify this irregularity. If the Hölder exponent of a function takes several values, the function is said multifractal. In the first part of this thesis, we study in details the regularity and the multifractality of some functions: the Darboux function, the Cantor bijection and a generalization of the Riemann function. The theory of wavelets notably provides a tool to investigate the Hölder continuity of a function. Wavelets also take part in other contexts. In the second part of this thesis, we consider a nonstationary version of the classical theory of wavelets. More precisely, we study the nonstationary orthonormal bases of wavelets and their construction from a nonstationary multiresolution analysis. We also present the nonstationary continuous wavelet transform. For some irregular functions, it is difficult to determine its Hölder exponent at each point. In order to get some information about this one, new function spaces based on wavelet leaders have been introduced. In the third and last part of this thesis, we present these new spaces and their first properties. We also define a natural topology on them and we study some properties. [less ▲]

In 1878, Cantor proved that there exists a one-to-one correspondence between the points of the unit line segment [0,1] and the points of the unit square [0,1]². Since this application is defined via continued fractions, it is very hard to have any intuition about its smoothness. In this talk, we explore the regularity and the fractal nature of Cantor's bijection, using some notions concerning the metric theory and the ergodic theory of continued fractions. This talk is based on a joint work with S. Nicolay. [less ▲]

Using wavelet leaders instead of wavelet coefficients, new sequence spaces of type Sν are defined and endowed with a natural topology. Some classical topological properties are then studied; in particular, a generic result about the asymptotic repartition of the wavelet leaders of a sequence in Lν is obtained. Eventually, comparisons and links with Oscillation spaces are also presented as well as with Sν spaces. [less ▲]

In this paper, we study the uniform H\"{o}lder continuity of the generalized Riemann function~$R_{\alpha,\beta}$ (with $\alpha>1$ and $\beta>0$) defined by \[ R_{\alpha,\beta}(x)=\sum_{n=1}^{+\infty}\frac{\sin(\pi n^\beta x)}{n^\alpha},\quad x\in\mathbb{R}, \] using its continuous wavelet transform. In particular, we show that the exponent we find is optimal. We also analyse the behaviour of~$R_{\alpha,\beta}$ as $\beta$ tends to infinity. [less ▲]

The $S^\nu$ spaces have been introduced in 2004 by S. Jaffard in the context of multifractal analysis. In comparison with Besov spaces (the classical functional setting to study signals), these spaces of functions related to the distribution of wavelet coefficients allow to obtain more information on the Hölder regularity of a signal. From a point of view of functional analysis, the $S^nu$ spaces can be considered as sequence spaces (because they are robust). Some properties (topology, complete metric, $p$-locally convexity,...) have been studied. The purpose of the talk is to present the beginning of an adaptation of the $S^nu$ spaces when the discrete wavelet coefficients are replaced by continuous wavelet transform coefficients. [less ▲]

The characterization of orthonormal bases of wavelets by means of convergent series involving only the mother wavelet is known, as well as the characterization of wavelets which can be constructed from a stationary multiresolution analysis or a scaling function (see for example the book of Hernandez-Weiss and references therein). Here we show that under some asymptotic condition, these results remain true in the non stationary case. [less ▲]

Multifractal analysis has been introduced in the context of turbulence. Some tools have been developed to study the solutions of some PDEs. In this talk, we will examine the regularity of Cantor's bijection between the irrational numbers of the unit interval [0,1] and the irrational numbers of the unit square [0,1]^2. We will particularly show that its H older exponent is equal to 1/2 almost everywhere (with respect to the Lebesgue measure). [less ▲]

An orthonormal basis of wavelets of $L^2(\mathbb{R})$ is an orthonormal basis of $L^2(\mathbb{R})$ of type \[ \psi_{j,k}=2^{j/2}\psi(2^j\cdot-k),\quad j,k\in\mathbb{Z}. \] A classical method to obtain such bases consists in constructing a multiresolution analysis. When the mother wavelet $\psi$ depends on the scale (i.e. the index $j$), a non stationary version of multiresolution analysis is then used. We generalize different characterizations of orthonormal bases of wavelets to the non stationary case (as main reference for the stationary case, we used results presented in "A First Course of Wavelets" of E.
