Inexpensive Gabor Decompositions

S.Qiu, H.G. Feichtinger, and T.Strohmer

This is a paper on the discrete Gabor transform. We discuss the calculation of dual and tight Gabor atoms, for Gabor atoms which satisfy certain support restrictions related to the relevant time- and frequency lattice constants. These conditions imply that the Gabor frame operator is just a point-wise multiplication operator and therefore computing the inverse or the square root of the inverse frame operator are computationally inexpensive.
