Remarks on multivariate Gaussian Gabor frames

  • Götz E. PfanderEmail author

Spanning properties of multivariate Gaussian Gabor systems are far from being fully understood. Our results illustrate that, unlike in dimension one where Gaussian Gabor frames are characterized in terms of lattice density, the behavior of Gaussian Gabor systems in higher-dimensions is intricate and further exploration is a valuable and challenging task.
