We introduce an acceleration algorithm for coulomb gauge fixing, using the compactly supported wavelets introduced by Daubechies. The algorithm is similar to Fourier acceleration. Our provisional numerical results for SU(3) on 84 lattices show that the acceleration based on the DAUB6 transform can reduce the number of iterations by a factor up to 3 over the unaccelerated algorithm. The reduction in iterations for Fourier acceleration is approximately a factor of 7.
