Using the Kaczmarz algorithm, we prove that for any singular Borel probability measure μ on [ 0 , 1 ) , every f L 2 ( μ ) possesses a Fourier series of the form f ( x ) = n = 0 c n e 2 π i n x . We show that the coefficients c n can be computed in terms of the quantities f ^ ( n ) = 0 1 f ( x ) e 2 π i n x d μ ( x ) . We also demonstrate a Shannon-type sampling theorem for functions that are in a sense μ -bandlimited. View Full-Text
