Shannon wavelets are studied together with their differential properties (known as connection
coefficients). It is shown that the Shannon sampling theorem can be considered in a more general
approach suitable for analyzing functions ranging in multifrequency bands. This generalization
coincides with the Shannon wavelet reconstruction of functions. The differential properties
of Shannon wavelets are also studied through the connection coefficients. It is shown that Shannon
wavelets are -functions and their any order derivatives can be analytically defined by some kind of
a finite hypergeometric series. These coefficients make it possible to define the wavelet reconstruction
of the derivatives of the -functions.
