A vector of functions φ = (φ1, . . . , φr)T ∈ (C(ℝs))r is said to be refinable if it satisfies the vector refinement equation φ(x) = ∑α∈ℤs a(α)φ(2x - α), where a is a finitely supported sequence of r x r matrices called the refinement mask. A complete characterization for the local linear independence of the shifts of φ1, . . . , φr is given strictly in terms of the mask. Several examples are provided to illustrate the general theory. This investigation is important for construction of wavelets on bounded domains and nonlinear approximation by wavelets.", author = "Goodman, {T. N T} and Jia, {R. Q.} and Zhou, {D.
