A frame in a Hilbert space H allows every element in H to be written as a linear combination of the frame elements, with coefficients called frame coefficients. Calculations of those coefficients and many other situations where frames occur, require knowledge of the inverse frame operator. But usually it is hard to invert the frame operator if the underlying Hilbert space is infinite dimensional. We introduce a method for approximation of the inverse frame operator using finite subsets of the frame. In particular this allows to approximate the frame coefficients (even in 2—sense) using finite-dimensional linear algebra. We show that the general method simplifies when the frame contains a Riesz basis.
