Basics of frame theory, especially on finite dimensional Hilbert spaces. Discussion of numerical and analytical questions on equiangular frames, phase retrieval, compressive sensing, time-frequency analysis with Gabor frames. Connections to quantum information theory are made.

Qualification Goals

The students shall

  • understand the mathematical / numerical aspects of frame theory,
  • learn to formulate problems from signal processing in the language of frame theory,
  • learn to solve analytical and numerical problems in frame theory,
  • to understand in an exemplary way how concrete practical developments influence the questions of applied mathematics,
  • practice mathematical working methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof techniques).


Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Keine. Empfohlen werden die Kompetenzen, die in den Modulen Lineare Algebra 1 und 2 sowie Analysis 1 vermittelt werden.
