**Frames and Time-Frequency Analysis**

__Reading Materials__:
A very short survey on frames for general mathematical audiences:
WHAT IS a Frame?, C. Heil,
Notices Amer. Math. Soc., **60** (2013), 748-750.

Main reference:
*A Basis Theory Primer*,
C. Heil, Birkhauser, Boston (2011) - expanded edition;
password protected and available to the Graduate Program participants only.
- Most of the lectures will be based on the material in
Chapters 7, 8 (Sections 8.1-8.4), and 11.
- Chapters 1 and 2 contain background on Banach and Hilbert spaces,
operator theory, and functional analysis.
- Chapter 9 contains a short review of the Fourier transform.
- An
Errata List is available (and please notify the author if you find additional typos!)
- The original 1998
*unexpanded* version is available
here.
However, that version covers only a limited portion of the material that
will be presented in the lectures.

An old survey paper that covers some of the material
on frames and Gabor frames (more concisely than the Basis Primer):
Continuous and discrete wavelet transforms,
C. E. Heil and D. F. Walnut,
SIAM Review, **31** (1989), 628-666.
