Research Track Record Overview

Currently I’m still working beyond the interplay between localization operators on the phase space and the structure of the Berezin symbol calculus in the context of polyanalytic Fock spaces.

Although localization operators has a long history of physics, they only became popular after the framework of Berezin (Berezin, 1971).  From the mathematical point of view Localization operators were used at a first time by I. Daubechies (1988) in order to localize a signal simultaneously on time and on frequency.  In the case that the symbol (window) is a Gaussian, the localization operators adopted by I. Daubechies are anti-Wick operators derived from Berezin quantization rules .

a complete framework about Gabor-Daubechies localization operators was established using the representation theory backdrop, namely the (Weyl-)Heisenberg group.

The main interest around this subject that seems to be useful applications in time-frequency analysis, namely on the study of modulation spaces (e.g. the Feichtinger algebra S_0) using essentially methods from analytic function spaces (e.g. BMO^p and Q_p (?)) is the Coburn conjecture announced in:


Coburn, L. A. The Bargmann isometry and Gabor-Daubechies wavelet localization operators. Systems, approximation, singular integral operators, and related topics (Bordeaux, 2000), 169–17

Roughly speaking, Coburn’s conjecture states that any localization operator L_f^{(w)} with symbol f and window w coincides with a Toeplitz operator T_{D f} with polynomial differential symbol D f.

This conjecture were already proved in the papers

Lo, Min-Lin(1-CASSB)

in the context of  Segal-Bargmann-Fock spaces for nicer class of windows under the constraint that the symbol f belongs to L^\infty(\mathbb{C}). Recently, Joshua Isralowitz and Bo Li use the results of the papers of Lo (2007) and Englis (2009) to study regularity conditions on the symbol under certain (BMO) regularity constraints as well as the boundedness and compactness of Toeplitz operators on the Segal-Bargmann-Fock spaces. This results appeared recently in Transactions of Mathematics.

In the sequel we are still developed on an extension of this result to polyanalytic Fock spaces in the context of Gabor analysis as a continuation of the framework started in the papers below. Forthcoming results should be announced soon…

  1. A kind of \psi DO are still in consideration for the construction of D. Namely, if W_\zeta F(z,\overline{z})=e^{-\frac{\pi}{2}|\zeta|^2}e^{\pi \overline{\zeta}z}F(z-\zeta,\overline{z}-\overline{\zeta}) is the Weyl representation on \mathbb{C} and \widehat{F}(\zeta,\overline{\zeta}) the corresponding symplectic Fourier transform,

    D:=\widehat{W}_D =\int_{\mathbb{C}}\widehat{D}(\zeta,\overline{\zeta})W_\zeta \frac{d \overline{\zeta} \wedge d\zeta}{2i}

    is the so-called Weyl operator and corresponds to a quantization of D(z,\overline{z}) on \mathbb{C}.

  2. Gelfand-Shilov spaces \mathcal{S}^\alpha_\alpha(\mathbb{C}) seem to be a wide class of symbols for the localization operators L_\sigma^{\Psi,\Theta}. It’s worthwile to see that for \alpha=1/2, this space include the Gaussian, special Hermite and and special Laguerre functions on the variables z and \overline{z} as basic elements.

  3. Paper entitled “Localization and Toeplitz Operators on Polyanalytic Fock Spaces” presenting the proof of Coburn’s result for the polyanalytic setting was already uploaded to arXiV.
    It will appear online this monday (July 28, 2011)
