Title: "Exponential Riesz bases and frames on two dimensional trapezoids"

Abstract: Let D be a domain of R^n; we say that L^2(D) has an exponential basis if there exists a sequence of functions { e^{i sm x}} m in Z , ( where sm is in C^n and x = (x1, ... xn)) which is such that every function in L^2(D) can be represented in a unique way as Sum[cm e^{i sm x}], with cm in C. For example, it is well known that L^2(-Pi, Pi) has an exponential basis, { e^{i nx})} m in Z, but is the same true if (- Pi, Pi) is replaced e.g, by the union of two or more intervals, or by a general domain of R^n? In a joint project with Andy Kumar, a former FIU graduate student, we have investigated exponential bases of 2-dimensional domains called trapezoid. In particular, we have considered domains that are union of finitely many rectangles, and we have found exponential bases for these domains. In this talk I will describe my joint project with Andy, and I will also discuss the problem of finding an exponential basis on L^2 of the union of segments in R, and how it is related to our problem. I will also give the definition of exponential frame, which is a generalization of exponential basis, and a brief introduction to the theory of frames.
