Paper Abstract

The singular functions for the problem of recovering a time limited function from its Fourier transform in a certain band of frequencies are given, in the simplest case, by the prolate spheroidal wave functions. We explore a number of issues related to this problem including the effective computation of the corresponding Slepian functions for a polar cap on the surface of the Earth. The same method would work for a region on the sphere bounded by two parallels.
