Unitary discrete linear canonical transform: analysis and application

Abstract

The numerical approximation of the linear canonical transforms (LCTs) is important in modeling coherent wave field propagation through first-order optical systems and in many digital signal processing applications. The continuous LCTs are unitary, but discretization can destroy this property. We present a sufficient condition on the sampling rates chosen in the discretization to ensure unitarity. We discuss the various subsets of the unitary matrices examined in this paper that have been proposed elsewhere. We offer a proof of the existence of all of the unitary matrices we discuss. We examine the consequences of these results, particularly in relation to the use of discrete transforms in iterative phase retrieval applications.
