Hi Alef, the Ed output gives the percentage of energy captured by the detail (wavelet) coefficients at each level, while the Ea output is the coarsest scale (final-level) scaling coefficient energy (again as a percentage).
[C,L] = wavedec(noisbump,4,'sym4');
[Ea,Ed] = wenergy(C,L);
Ed is 1-by-4, the percent energy captured by the wavelet coefficients from the finest scale to coarsest scale.
Ea is a scalar representing the final-scale scaling coefficient energy.
