Shift invariant spaces in \(L^2({\mathbb {R}},{\mathbb {C}}^m)\) with m generators

  • 16 Accesses


The paper deals with sampling and reconstruction of vector valued functions in a shift invariant space with multiple generators. Unlike the case of a shift invariant space with multiple generators in \(L^{2}(\mathbb {R})\), when the dimension of the vectors is the same as the number of generators, \(\mathbb {Z}\) turns out to be a stable set of sampling. A sampling formula for reconstructing a function from its samples at integer points is derived and the problem of sampling on a perturbed set of integers is discussed. An illustration of sampling and reconstruction of a function in \(L^{2}(\mathbb {R},\mathbb {R}^{2})\) on a finite interval is given using Matlab.
