Generalized Fourier-Bessel operator and almost-periodic interpolation and approximation

Abstract : We consider functions f of two real variables, given as trigonometric functions over a finite set F of frequencies. This set is assumed to be closed under rotations in the frequency plane of angle 2kπ M for some integer M. Firstly, we address the problem of evaluating these functions over a similar finite set E in the space plane and, secondly, we address the problems of interpolating or approximating a function g of two variables by such an f over the grid E. In particular, for this aim, we establish an abstract factorization theorem for the evaluation function, which is a key point for an efficient numerical solution to these problems. This result is based on the very special structure of the group SE(2, N), subgroup of the group SE(2) of motions of the plane corresponding to discrete rotations, which is a maximally almost periodic group. Although the motivation of this paper comes from our previous works on biomimetic image reconstruction and pattern recognition, where these questions appear naturally, this topic is related with several classical problems: the FFT in polar coordinates, the Non Uniform FFT, the evaluation of general trigonometric polynomials, and so on.
