Major en *let - In honor of Jean Morlet

Jean Morlet (or the Major en -let, in french in the text), one of the fathers of all wavelets, along with some precursors, as in the nice notice Precursors in mathematics: early wavelet bases, by Hans G. Feichtinger, is honored at the end of October in Marseille, France.

A preliminary program below the Morelet crocodile:
