The costbase base class provides a constructor that is passed the root of a wavelet packet tree (which is built by packtree.cpp). The wavelet packet tree is constructed from packnode objects (which are a subclass of the packdata).
The cost function calculation invoked by the constructor traverses the wavelet packet tree (top down) and calls costCalc on each node in the tree. The cost function result is stored in the node. Note that the cost function also calculates a cost value for the original data, since in theory the original data may represent the minimal representation for the data in terms of the cost function.
The pure virtual function costCalc, which calculates the cost function, must be defined by the subclass.
A description of the cost functions associated with the wavelet packet transform can be found in Chapter 8 of Ripples in Mathematics by Jense and la CourHarbo.
