Abstract

A fractional Gabor transform (FRGT) is proposed. This new transform is a generalization of the conventional Gabor transform (GT) based on the Fourier transform to the windowed fractional Fourier transform (FRFT).  The FRGT provides analyses of signals in both the real space and the FRFT frequency domain simultaneously. The space–FRFT frequency pattern can be rotated as the fractional order changes. The FRGT has an additional freedom, compared with the conventional GT, i.e., the transform order. The FRGT may offer a useful tool for guiding optimal filter design in the FRFT domain in signal processing.
