Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Frame theory is concerned with the study of stable, potentially overcomplete spanning sets in a Hilbert space. Its starting point is a generalization of the principle of an orthonormal basis resulting in the definition of a frame. Similar to orthonormal bases (ONBs) every function can be
(i) recovered from its frame coefficients, i.e. the inner products with respect to the frame elements and
(ii) expanded into a linear combination of the frame elements.
Frames have a rich structure despite being much less restrictive than ONBs, rendering them attractive for a wide number of applications. In addition to being an active field of research, posing interesting research questions of its own, frame theory has applications in other fields, like signal processing and physics.

Students of this course will gain understanding of the basic properties of frames and Riesz bases in comparison to ONBs, both in a linear algebra and functional anaylsis context. Particular The implementation of frame-related algorithms will be considered and applications in acoustics, signal processing and quantum mechanics are presented as motivation.

For a short introduction see
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frame_(linear_algebra)

This will be a standard frontal course, using mostly the blackboard and ocaasionally the beamer.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam

(In exceptional cases an oral exam is possible.)
