What are some promising areas of research in digital signal processing?

Choosing a novel topic is a bold and wise move. Your question requires a bit of a bet, yet it is interesting to me, as I have not thought about this for a while. I will first drop two dual thoughts (...

I cannot find reference (paper) of this relation $u(t)t^{α} ↔^{FT} f^{-(α+1)}$

You will find a "proof" of principle in math-stackexchange: Fourier transform of power function $t^\alpha$ (the title lacks the mention of the unit step function $u(t)$). At least formally, ...

I cannot find reference (paper) of this relation $u(t)t^{α} ↔^{FT} f^{-(α+1)}$

I haven't found a reference but it appears to be related to the derivative/integral properties of the FT: $n^{th}$ derivative in frequency corresponds to multiplication with $t^n$ in the time domain (...
