Zak Transform

The Zak transform is a signal transform relevant to time-continuous signals sampled at a uniform rate and an arbitrary clock phase (Janssen 1988). The Zak transform of a signal can be considered as a mixed time-frequency representation of f


for 0<=t<=T and 0<=nu<=T^(-1). The Zak transform is sometimes also known as the Weil-Brezin map.
