In this paper we present two applications of a Stability Theorem of Hilbert frames to nonharmonic Fourier series and wavelet Riesz basis. The first result is an enhancement of the Paley-Wiener type constant for nonharmonic series given by Duffin and Schaefer in [6] and used recently in some applications (see [3]). In the case of an orthonormal basis, our estimate reduces to Kadec’ optimal 1/4 result. The second application proves that a phenomenon discovered by Daubechies and Tchamitchian [4] for the orthonormal Meyer wavelet basis (stability of the Riesz basis property under small changes of the translation parameter) actually holds for a large class of wavelet Riesz bases.
