Poisson Summation Formula appears to fail when applied to Hermite Functions (why?) [duplicate]

I came across an odd circumstance where it appears as though the poisson summation formula fails to yield a correct answer (involving Hermite Functions), and I don't quite understand why this happens. ...

Lower bound on coefficients in hermite transform of Tanh

I would like to understand $L^2\left(\mathbb{R}, \mu\right)$ approximation by polynomials of $\tanh$ (and more generally smooth functions), where $\mu$ is standard gaussian distribution. This leads to ...

Hermite Transform of Tanh

I would like to understand $L^2(\mathbb{R},\mu)$ approximation by polynomials of $\tanh$ up to degree $n$ where $\mu$ is the standard Gaussian distribution. This leads to considering the Hermite ...

A special solution to the Hermite Differential Equation

I know that the general form solution to the Hermite differential equation $$ y''-2xy'+2\lambda y=0$$ is $$y(x)=a_1 M(-\frac{\lambda}{2},\frac{1}{2},x^2)+a_2 H(\lambda,x),$$ where $M(\cdot,\cdot,\cdot)...

Discrete Wavelet Transform and Gaussian decay

I have a question regarding the possibility of constructing a Discrete Wavelet Transform based on a scaling function having Gaussian decay (and no more decay than that). More specifically, I am ...

Basis for $L^2(\mathbb{R})$ that Solves the Heat Equation

This is a less-than-serious question that I asked on math.SE, but I suspect it is slightly more appropriate to ask it here. Consider the heat equation $$ u_t = \frac12 u_{xx} $$ On $\mathbb{T}$ with ...

Generating function for products of complex Hermite polynomials

By making use of the generating function $$\sum_{m=0}^\infty \frac{H_m(x)}{m!} t^m=e^{-t^2 + 2xt} $$ for the real Hermite polynomials $H_m$, we get easily that $$(*)\quad \sum_{m,n=0}^\infty \frac{u^...

Turán's inequalities for Hermite functions

Given $\lambda \in \mathbb{R}$ let $H_{\lambda}(x)$ be the solution of the Hermite differential equation: $$ \frac{d^{2}}{dx^{2}} H_{\lambda}(x)-x\frac{d}{dx}H_{\lambda}(x)+\lambda H_{\lambda}(x)=0, ...

Asymptotic form of $L^1$-norm of Hermite functions

Background Working on a quantum mechanics problem, I've stumbled on the problem of maximizing the functional $$\int_{A} \varphi_m \varphi_n$$ in the limit of large $m$ and $n$, given that $n \gg m$. ...

Has the Weierstass transform been used to give Hermite series representations of the Riemann zeta function?

The inverse of the Weierstrass transform expands a function as a series of Hermite polynomials $H_{n}$. There are several ways to invert the Weierstrass transform which led me to the following ...
