Let a   = ( 𝑎 1 , 𝑎 2 , , 𝑎 𝑚 ) 𝑚 be an m-dimensional vector. Then, it can be identified with an 𝑚 × 𝑚 circulant matrix. By using the theory of matrix-valued wavelet analysis (Walden and Serroukh, 2002), we discuss the vector-valued multiresolution analysis. Also, we derive several different designs of finite length of vector-valued filters. The corresponding scaling functions and wavelet functions are given. Specially, we deal with the construction of filters on symmetric matrix-valued functions space.
