## Abstract

It is well known that in the univariate case, up to an integer shift and possible sign change, there is no dyadic compactly supported symmetric orthonormal scaling function except for the Haar function. In this paper we are concerned with the construction of symmetric orthonormal scaling functions with dilation factor $d=4$. Several examples of such scaling functions are provided in this paper. In particular, two examples of $C^1$ orthonormal scaling functions, which are symmetric about $0$ and $\frac{1}{6}$, respectively, are presented. We will then discuss how to construct symmetric wavelets from these scaling functions. We explicitly construct the corresponding orthonormal symmetric wavelets for all the examples given in this paper.
