Abstract:

Recent work by the CUNY group under the direction of Professor Louis Auslander has continued to study application of the Weil transform to radar signal processing and, in a parallel effort, to multi-access spread spectrum communications. The main thrust of the work is the relationship between the Weil transform of a waveform and the ambiguity surface of the wave-form. The study of this relationship has led to a fundamental observation the cancellation properties of a waveform necessary for the creation of a thumbtack-like ambiguity surface may be viewed as arising from the pattern of zeros and the non-trivial winding numbers of the Weil transform of the waveform. This point of view is exposited arid used to reinterpret classical radar waveform design techniques, while also providing a new method for radar waveform design. Additionally, a new technique for modifying or shaping waveforms has been developed. This consists of changing a waveforms has been developed. This consists of changing a waveform by multiplying its Weil transform by doubly-periodic functions and taking the inverse Weil transform to produce a new signal.
