A quantitative Balian–Low theorem for higher dimensions

We extend the quantitative Balian–Low theorem of Nitzan and Olsen to higher dimensions. We use Zak transform methods and dimension reduction. The characterization of the Gabor–Riesz bases by the Zak transform allows us to reduce the problem to the quasiperiodicity and the boundedness from below of the Zak transforms of the Gabor–Riesz basis generators, two properties for which dimension reduction is possible.

Keywords: Uncertainty principle; Balian–Low theorem
