Boundedness and Compactness of Localization Operators Associated with the Spherical Mean Wigner Transform



We introduce the notion of localization operators associated with the spherical mean Wigner transform, and we give a trace formula for the localization operators associated with the spherical mean Wigner transform as a bounded linear operator in the trace class from \(L^{2}(d\nu )\) into \(L^{2}(d\nu )\) in terms of the symbol and the two admissible wavelets. Next, we give results on the boundedness and compactness of localization operators associated with the spherical mean Wigner transform on \(L^{p}(d\nu )\), \(1 \le p \le \infty \).
