Fractional Fourier Transform and Its Applications
Fractional Fourier Transform is a type of Linear Conanical Transform, which has an extra free parameter when compared to ordinary Fourier Transform.
This free parameter corresponds to the projection of the timefrequency representation of the signal at a certain angle which depends on the parameter value.
FrFT has found a wide range of applications in signal and image processing, especially whenever there are time or space variant systems or signals are involved.
Below, we list our contributions to the area and the applications we have developed based on FrFT.
Fractional Fourier Decompositions
Image Compression with FrFT
Perspective Projections and FrFT
