Clifford Valued Shearlet Transform


This paper deals with the construction of \(n=3 \text{ mod } 4\) Clifford algebra \(Cl_{n,0}\)-valued admissible shearlet transform using the shearlet group \((\mathbb {R}^* < imes \mathbb {R}^{n-1}) < imes \mathbb {R}^n\), a subgroup of affine group of \({\mathbb {R}}^n\). The admissibility conditions for a nonzero Clifford valued square integrable function have been obtained. Various properties such as reconstruction formula, orthogonality relation, isometry and reproducing kernel have been dealt. As an application, Heisenberg type uncertainty principle for Clifford shearlet transform has been derived.
