We consider a weighted form of the Poisson summation formula. We prove that under certain decay rate conditions on the weights, there exists a unique unitary Fourier–Poisson operator which satisfies this formula. We next find the diagonal form of this operator, and prove that under weaker conditions on the weights, a unique unitary operator still exists which satisfies a Poisson summation formula in operator form. We also generalize the interplay between the Fourier transform and derivative to those Fourier–Poisson operators.
