Guided Tour of Generalized Functions in Signal Processing 1
Department of Mathematical Sciences Virginia Commonwealth University Doha, Qatar
The paper considers generalized functions as a necessary ingredient in various signal- processing techniques. Oftentimes generalized functions are implemented in a casual way and not reflecting the need to establish results on a mathematical platform. A few of the important connections between the applications and mathematical foundations are included together with several illustrations.
The rapid descent test functions with the inclusion of a few very needed principals are given in section 2. It also gives a brief introduction of tempered distributions including some very important theorems. The paper then moves into section 3 giving the fundamentals of a discrete Fourier transform pair. This is then embedded into a tempered distribution setting. Section 4 gives an introduction to windowing signal data and again embeds it into the tempered distribution setting. The paper concludes with a very brief overview on filtering frequency techniques.
II. The Test Space S
We adopt the following notation conventions. For positive integers, qi, (1 ≤ i ≤ n ) , the n length of q=(q1, q2,…, qn) is defined as q = ∑ q i . The absolute values in the paper also i =1 use the same notation. The context of the notation will indicate the appropriate meaning. n The Euclidean distance for x ∈ R will be denoted as a norm, x = n ∑x i =1 2 i , and for
differentiable functions, φ(x), the differential operator will be denoted as ∂ ( q1 ,..., qn ) D qφ ( x) = q1 φ ( x1 ,..., x n ) . ∂x1 ...∂x n n q
The test space S of rapid descent test functions are all infinitely differentiable and together with all of their partial derivatives decrease to zero faster than every power of
