When \( {\mathcal a} \) = 2ΩT, the operator PΩQ T corresponding to single time and frequency intervals has an eigenvalue λ \( {}_{\mathcal a} \) 1/2, as Theorem 4.1.2 below will show. The norm λ0(\( {\mathcal a} \) = 1) of the operator PQ1/2 satisfies λ0(\( {\mathcal a} \) = 1) ≥ ∥sinc [1/2, 1/2]∥ > 0.88. The trace of PQ1/2 is equal to \( {\mathcal a} \) = 1, on the one hand and to Σλ n on the other, so λ1(\( {\mathcal a} \) = 1) ≤ 1λ0(\( {\mathcal a} \) = 1) < 1/2. Suppose that T = 1 and Σ is a finite, pairwise disjoint union of \( {\mathcal a} \) frequency intervals I1, … , I\(_{} {\mathcal a} \) each of unit length. Then PΣQ should have on the order of \( {\mathcal a} \) eigenvalues of magnitude at least 1/2. Consider now the limiting case in which the frequency intervals become separated at infinity. Any function ψ j that is concentrated in frequency on I j will be almost orthogonal over [−T,T], in the separation limit, to any function ψ k that is frequency-concentrated on I k when j ≠ k.
