Dunkl-Gabor transform and time-frequency concentration

  • Saifallah Ghobber


The aim of this paper is to prove two new uncertainty principles for the Dunkl-Gabor transform. The first of these results is a new version of Heisenberg’s uncertainty inequality which states that the Dunkl-Gabor transform of a nonzero function with respect to a nonzero radial window function cannot be time and frequency concentrated around zero. The second result is an analogue of Benedicks’ uncertainty principle which states that the Dunkl-Gabor transform of a nonzero function with respect to a particular window function cannot be time-frequency concentrated in a subset of the form S × B(0, b) in the time-frequency plane ℝ d × ℝ̂ d . As a side result we generalize a related result of Donoho and Stark on stable recovery of a signal which has been truncated and corrupted by noise.
