Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Common Hilbert Spaces

Module by: Roy Ha, Justin Romberg. E-mail the authors

Summary: This module will give an overview of the most common Hilbert spaces and their basic properties.

Common Hilbert Spaces

Below we will look at the four most common Hilbert spaces that you will have to deal with when discussing and manipulating signals and systems.

Rn n (reals scalars) and Cn n (complex scalars), also called 2 0 n1 2 0 n 1

x= x 0 x 1 x n - 1 x x 0 x 1 x n - 1 is a list of numbers (finite sequence). The inner product for our two spaces are as follows:

  • Standard inner product Rn n :
    x,y=yTx=i=0n1 x i y i x y y x i 0 n 1 x i y i
    (1)
  • Standard inner product Cn n :
    x,y=yT¯x=i=0n1 x i y i ¯ x y y x i 0 n 1 x i y i
    (2)

Model for: Discrete time signals on the interval 0 n1 0 n 1 or periodic (with period nn) discrete time signals. x 0 x 1 x n - 1 x 0 x 1 x n - 1

Figure 1 (fig1.png)

f L 2 a b f L 2 a b is a finite energy function on a b a b

Inner Product

f,g=abftgt¯dt f g t a b f t g t
(3)
Model for: continuous time signals on the interval a b a b or periodic (with period T=ba T b a ) continuous time signals

x 2 Z x 2 is an infinite sequence of numbers that's square-summable

Inner product

x,y=i=xiyi¯ x y i x i y i
(4)
Model for: discrete time, non-periodic signals

f L 2 R f L 2 is a finite energy function on all of R.

Inner product

f,g=ftgt¯dt f g t f t g t
(5)
Model for: continuous time, non-periodic signals

Associated Fourier Analysis

Each of these 4 Hilbert spaces has a type of Fourier analysis associated with it.

  • L 2 a b L 2 a b → Fourier series
  • 2 0 n1 2 0 n 1 → Discrete Fourier Transform
  • L 2 R L 2 → Fourier Transform
  • 2 Z 2 → Discrete Time Fourier Transform
But all 4 of these are based on the same principles (Hilbert space).

Important note:

Not all normed spaces are Hilbert spaces
For example: L 1 ( ) L 1 ( ) , f1=|ft|dt 1 f t f t . Try as you might, you can't find an inner product that induces this norm, i.e. a ·,· · · such that
f,f=|ft|2dt2=f12 f f t f t 2 2 1 f 2
(6)
In fact, of all the L p R L p spaces, L 2 R L 2 is the only one that is a Hilbert space.

Hilbert spaces are by far the nicest. If you use or study orthonormal basis expansion then you will start to see why this is true.
