In this talk, the advantages of wavelet analysis (WA) for resolving data structures are demonstrated. Due to good scaling properties of wavelets, the data can be studied with various resolutions. 

The talk will start with a brief introduction to the continuous WA. As an example, we consider the WA of the ratio. We also use the wavelet methodology to distinguish relatively wide charmonium resonances in the energy region, 3.0 – 6.0 GeV from experimental noise, background and, also from each other, which allows finding the parameters of these states more reliably.

In the end, preservation of the S matrix unitarity methods for overlapping resonances will be discussed.
