Introduction Frames and Tight Frames Let be a Hilbert space. A set of vectors in is called a frame if there exist such that for any , we have The constants are called lower frame bound and upper frame bound.
Introduction A frame is called a tight frame if . • Equal-norm Frames A frame where all elements have the same norm is called an equal-norm frame. We only consider finite dimensional Hilbert space
Examples • The union of two orthonormal bases is a tight frame with frame bound 2 is a tight frame in . ----- Mercedes-Benz frame
