Abstract

The aim of this article is to present a time-frequency theory for orthogonal polynomials on the interval [ - 1, 1] that runs parallel to the time-frequency analysis of bandlimited functions developed by Landau, Pollak and Slepian. For this purpose, the spectral decomposition of a particular compact time-frequency operator is studied. This decomposition and its eigenvalues are closely related to the theory of orthogonal polynomials. Results from both theories, the theory of orthogonal polynomials and the Landau-Pollak-Slepian theory, can be used to prove localization and approximation properties of the corresponding eigenfunctions. Finally, an uncertainty principle is proven that reflects the limitation of coupled time and frequency locatability. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
