This work derives a family of dilation matrices for the body-centered cubic (BCC) lattice, which is optimal in the sense of spectral sphere packing. While satisfying the necessary conditions for dilation, these matrices are all cube roots of an integer scalar matrix. This property offers theoretical advantages for construction of wavelet functions in addition to the practical advantages when iterating through a perfect reconstruction filter bank based on BCC downsampling. Lastly, we factor the BCC matrix into two matrices that allow us to cascade two two-channel perfect reconstruction filter banks in order to construct a four-channel perfect reconstruction filter bank based on BCC downsampling.
