Symbolic Calculus and Fredholm Property for Localization Operators



We study the composition of time-frequency localization operators (wavepacket operators) and develop a symbolic calculus of such operators on modulation spaces. The use of time-frequency methods (phase space methods) allows the use of rough symbols of ultra-rapid growth in place of smooth symbols in the standard classes. As the main application it is shown that, in general, a localization operator possesses the Fredholm property, and thus its range is closed in the target space.
