Wavelet transform has been developed and applied in various areas of science and engineering. It offers better signal processing capabilities due to the existence of a large number of wavelet functions. The superiority comes with a requirement of methods to select a proper wavelet function for each signal or application. Selection methods based on signal properties are not always applicable due to the lack of mathematical definition of most analyzed signals. Wavelet function can be selected based on its shape similarity to interested transient in input signal. The selection method is subjective since there is no quantified parameter to measure this similarity. This paper introduces a new parameter, symmetric distance coefficient (SDC) to measure similarity between wavelet function and transient in a signal. It is based on a fact that wavelet coefficients of a transient that has similar shape and similar time support to a wavelet function are always symmetric. The parameter measures similarity by measuring the degree of symmetry in wavelet coefficients. The paper also reports an experiment to demonstrate procedures to measure this similarity using SDC.
