### Is Gabor uncertainty a feature of the Fourier transform, or of nature?

By Gabor uncertainty, I mean the principle of uncertainty as applied to signals — with the result that you can't have arbitrary time and frequency localization. By way of background to my question, ...

### gabor filters for digital image processing

For the application of Gabor filters in feature-based (e.g. lines and edges in images) digital image processing, it is desired that the DC component is 0. Why is this so? What effect does it have ...

### proving that a log gabor filter has 0 DC offset

I have read somewhere online that the log gabor filter has an advantage over the gabor filter, in the sense that it has 0 DC component. How do you prove this property mathematically? Thanks in advance....
