Causal equivalence of frames [electronic resource] /

by Henderson, Troy Lee

Abstract (Summary)
Frames have recently become popular in the area of applied mathematics known as digital signal processing. Frames offer a level of redundancy that bases do not provide. In a sub-area of signal processing known as data recovery, redundancy has become increasingly useful; therefore, so have frames. Just as orthonormal bases are desirable for numerical computations, Parseval frames provide similar properties as orthonormal bases while maintaining a desired level of redundancy. This dissertation will begin with a basic background on frames and will proceed to encapsulate my research as partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics at Texas A&M University. More specifically, in this dissertation we investigate an apparently new concept we term causal equivalence of frames and techniques for transforming frames into Parseval frames in a way that generalizes the Classical Gram-Schmidt process for bases. Finally, we will compare and contrast these techniques.
