Riesz bases.


(Riesz basis) A collection of functions MATH is a Riesz basis for the MATH (closure taken in $L^{2}$ ) iff

(a). MATH are linearly independent,

(b). MATH such that MATH we have

MATH (Riesz frame)


(Biorthogonality criteria 1) Let MATH . Then MATH is biorthogonal to MATH iff MATH


is similar to the proof of the proposition ( OST property 1 ).


(Existence of biorthogonal basis 1) If MATH has the property

MATH (Frame formula 1)
then there exists a biorthogonal basis MATH with the function $\tilde{\phi}$ given by MATH


Apply the proposition ( Biorthogonality criteria 1 ).


(Frame property 1) If MATH satisfies the property ( Frame formula 1 ) then for MATH MATH where MATH


We calculate MATH hence MATH Make change $z=y+n$ and use MATH . MATH and we arrive to the desired conclusion.


(Frame property 2)

1. If a function MATH satisfies the formula ( Frame formula 1 ) then there exist $A,B=const>0$ such that MATH we have

MATH (Riesz property)

2. If a function MATH has compact support and $\phi$ satisfies the formula ( Riesz property ) then it satisfies the formula ( Frame formula 1 ).


(1). For a function MATH we calculate MATH MATH We use the formula ( Property of scale and transport 4 ). MATH We continue calculation of MATH We make a change $z=y+m$ . The function MATH has period 1. MATH The function MATH has period 1 and the above expression is the Fourier coefficient of it. By proposition ( Parseval equality ) we have MATH We substitute the formula ( Frame formula 1 ): MATH so that MATH and use the following consequence of the proposition ( Frame property 1 ): MATH thus MATH


(2) According to the proposition ( Property of transport 2 ), the function MATH takes the form MATH for some finite sequence of real numbers MATH . For this reason we already have MATH To prove the part MATH it suffices to disprove existence of MATH such that MATH . This is so because MATH is periodic.

For MATH to vanish, every term MATH has to vanish. In other words, we aim to show that there cannot exist a $y^{\ast}$ such that MATH or MATH

In the part (1) of the proof we obtained the generic relationship MATH . We will reach our goal if we can find a sequence MATH : MATH where the $\hat{c}_{N}$ is Fourier transform of MATH : MATH Indeed, if such MATH exists then, according to MATH , MATH and we would have a contradiction with the formula ( Riesz property ).

Existence of such MATH is standard. We approximate MATH on $\left[ 0,1\right] $ by an $N$ -indexed sequence of periodic functions, obtain its Fourier coefficients MATH and use them in the combination MATH .


(Frame property 3) If functions MATH satisfy the conditions

(a) $\phi$ is compactly supported,

(b) MATH is a Riesz basis for MATH ,

(c) MATH is biorthogonal to MATH .


(1) $\forall f\in$ MATH MATH

(2) there exist $A,B=const>0$ such that $\forall f\in$ MATH MATH


It suffices to prove (1) and (2) for MATH . Extending to the closure is a standard exercise because all involved operations are $L^{2}$ -continuous.

Let MATH then by applying MATH we get MATH hence (1).

According to the proposition ( Biorthogonality criteria 1 ), MATH and by condition (b) and proposition ( Frame property 2 )-2, MATH for some MATH From MATH we derive MATH for some MATH .

We now apply the proposition ( Frame property 1 ): MATH By the proposition ( Parseval equality ), MATH hence (2).
