\(L^{p}\) local uncertainty principles for the Dunkl Gabor transform on \({\mathbb {R}}^{d}\)


The purpose of this paper is to establish the \(L^{p}\) local uncertainty principles for the Dunkl Gabor transform on \({\mathbb {R}}^{d}\). These allow us to prove a couple of global uncertainty inequalities.
