Sampling of compact signals in offset linear canonical transform domains Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract The offset linear canonical transform (OLCT) is the name of a parameterized continuum of transforms which include, as particular cases, the most widely used linear transforms in engineering such as the Fourier transform (FT), fractional Fourier transform (FRFT), Fresnel transform (FRST), frequency modulation, time shifting, time scaling, chirping and others. Therefore the OLCT provides a unified framework for studying the behavior of many practical transforms and system responses. In this paper the sampling theorem for OLCT is considered. The sampling theorem for OLCT signals presented here serves as a unification and generalization of previously developed sampling theorems.
