Orthogonalization of system of translates.


(OST property 3) Assume that

1. MATH ,

2. $g$ has compact support,

3. there exist constants $A,B>0$ such that

MATH (Riesz basis condition)
then there exists a function $g_{0}$ such that


b. MATH is OST,

c. MATH . The closure is taken in $L^{2}$ .


We look for $g_{0}$ in MATH . Then (a) is trivial and (c) would be satisfied (see below). To get (b) we use the proposition ( OST property 1 ).

We set MATH We need MATH to achieve (a) because MATH (see the formula ( Property of scale and transport 3 )) and we need MATH to achieve (b) (see the proposition ( OST property 1 )). We take the Fourier transform of $\left( \#\right) $ : MATH We use the formula ( Property of scale and transport 4 ): MATH Hence MATH Therefore, we would like to choose MATH to satisfy $\left( \&\right) $ according to the rule MATH Hence, we have MATH if we establish that the RHS is in MATH (see the sections ( Fourier series ) and ( Fourier analysis in Hilbert space )). But this is evident from the conditions (1),(2) and (3).

It remains to prove that $\left( \#\right) $ with MATH implies (c). The statement MATH is trivial. We need to prove MATH . Let MATH so that MATH We seek MATH such that MATH or MATH

Thus we need to have MATH and MATH under assumptions that MATH . Furthermore, by the condition (2), the summation in $p$ and the number of MATH is finite. Hence, MATH is finite dimensional linear equation. The matrix of MATH has the form MATH for some index ranges $K$ and $P$ of the same length depending on diameter of $spt~g$ . Since MATH has only a finite number non-zero coordinates, the matrix $C$ is semi-diagonal. Hence, $\det C\not =0$ and MATH always have a solution.
