The influence of eigendecomposition on the periodicity of a (rank 2) Hermitian matrix (of functions)

Let $\boldsymbol{R}(u,v);~u,v\in\mathbb{R}$ be a Hermitian matrix (of Hermitian functions) with entries \begin{equation} r_{ij}(u,v) = 1 + Ae^{-2\pi i \phi_{ij}(ul_0 + vm_0)}; ...

An integral with Gamma functions (Part 2)

I was wondering if there is a generalization of the integral discussed here to a case like, \begin{equation}\int \frac{d^dq}{q^{\nu_1}\vert \vec{q} \pm \vec{k}_1\vert ^{\nu_2}\vert \vec{q} \pm ...

The Paley-Wiener theorem and exponential decay.

Consider a function whose Fourier transform is supported on a half-ray: $$ A(t)=\int_0^\infty \omega(E) e^{-iEt}d E, $$ where I can suppose $\omega(E)\geq 0$ and any suitable regularity conditions on ...

Characteristic Function of a Non-negative Random Variable Evaluated at a Complex Value

Suppose we have a non-negative random variable $X$ with density $p(x)$,and its characteristic function, evaluated at a complex number $z$, being $\phi(z)=E[e^{z X}]=\int_{0}^{\infty}e^{zx}p(x)dx$. It ...

In Fourier Transforms: Positive Definite Functions, Bochner's Theorem, and Derivatives

I've been reading about Bochner's Theorem lately, but when I apply it to the derivative of a function, I seem to get a contradiction with the theorem. "Bochner's theorem states that a positive ...

What is this effect in Fourier/additive synthesis called?

Hi, I have re-synthesized a cyclic function additively, and I added a fixed offset to the frequency of each partial. So if the function was $\sum a_{n} sin(2 \pi x * n)$ and its frequencies were ...

Level set of a harmonic function

Let $u$ be a nonconstant real-valued harmonic function defined in the open unit disk $D$. Suppose that $\Gamma\subset D$ is a smooth connected curve such that $u=0$ on $\Gamma$. Is there a universal ...
