and in signal processing
, the Hilbert transform is a linear operator which takes a function, u(t), and produces a function, H(u(t)), with the same domain
. The Hilbert transform is named after David Hilbert
, who first introduced the operator in order to solve a special case of the Riemann–Hilbert problem for holomorphic function
s. It is a basic tool in Fourier analysis, and provides a concrete means for realizing the harmonic conjugate
of a given function or Fourier series
. Furthermore, in harmonic analysis
, it is an example of a singular integral operator
, and of a Fourier multiplier
. The Hilbert transform is also important in the field of signal processing where it is used to derive the analytic representation
of a signal u(t).
The Hilbert transform was originally defined for periodic function
s, or equivalently for functions on the circle
, in which case it is given by convolution
with the Hilbert kernel. More commonly, however, the Hilbert transform refers to a convolution with the Cauchy kernel, for functions defined on the real line
R (the boundary
of the upper halfplane). The Hilbert transform is closely related to the Paley–Wiener theorem
, another result relating holomorphic functions in the upper halfplane and Fourier transform
s of functions on the real line.
Introduction
The Hilbert transform can be thought of as the convolutionof u(t) with the function h(t) = 1/(π t). Because h(t) is not integrable the integrals defining the convolution do not converge. Instead, the Hilbert transform is defined using the Cauchy principal value
(denoted here by p.v.) Explicitly, the Hilbert transform of a function (or signal) u(t) is given by
provided this integral exists as a principal value. This is precisely the convolution of u with the tempered distribution
p.v. 1/πt . Alternatively, by changing variables, the principal value integral can be written explicitly as
When the Hilbert transform is applied twice in succession to a function u, the result is minus u:
provided the integrals defining both iterations converge in a suitable sense. In particular, the inverse transform is −H. This fact can most easily be seen by considering the effect of the Hilbert transform on the Fourier transform of (see Relationship with the Fourier transform, below).
For an analytic function
in upper halfplane the Hilbert transform describes the relationship between the real part and the imaginary part of the boundary values. That is, if f(z) is analytic in the plane Im z > 0 and u(t) = Re f(t + 0·i ) then Im f(t + 0·i ) = H(u)(t) up to an additive constant, provided this Hilbert transform exists.
Notation
In signal processingthe Hilbert transform of u(t) is commonly denoted by However, in mathematics, this notation is already extensively used to denote the Fourier transform of u(t). Occasionally, the Hilbert transform may be denoted by . Furthermore, many sources define the Hilbert transform as the negative of the one defined here.
History
The Hilbert transform arose in Hilbert's 1905 work on a problem posed by Riemann concerning analytic functions which has come to be known as the Riemann–Hilbert problem. Hilbert's work was mainly concerned with the Hilbert transform for functions defined on the circle . Some of his earlier work related to the Discrete Hilbert Transform dates back to lectures he gave in Göttingen. The results were later published by Hermann Weyl in his dissertation . Schur improved Hilbert's results about the discrete Hilbert transform and extended them to the integral case . These results were restricted to the spaces L^{2} and ℓ^{2}. In 1928, Marcel Riesz
proved that the Hilbert transform can be defined for u in L^{p}(R)
for 1 < p < ∞, that the Hilbert transform is a bounded operator
on L^{p}(R) for the same range of p, and that similar results hold for the Hilbert transform on the circle as well as the discrete Hilbert transform . The Hilbert transform was a motivating example for Antoni Zygmund
and Alberto Calderón
during their study of singular integral
s . Their investigations have played a fundamental role in modern harmonic analysis. Various generalizations of the Hilbert transform, such as the bilinear and trilinear Hilbert transforms are still active areas of research today.
The early 2000s saw the development of Hilbert spectroscopy
which uses Hilbert transforms to detect signatures of chemical mixtures by analyzing broad spectrum signals from gigahertz to terahertz frequency radio.
Relationship with the Fourier transform
As mentioned before, the Hilbert transform is a multiplier operator. The symbol of H is σ_{H}(ω) = −i sgn(ω) where sgn is the signum function
. Therefore:
where denotes the Fourier transform
. Since sgn(x) = sgn(2πx), it follows that this result applies to the three common definitions of
By Euler's formula
,
Therefore H(u)(t) has the effect of shifting the phase of the negative frequency
components of u(t) by +90° (π/2 radians) and the phase of the positive frequency components by −90°. And i·H(u)(t) has the effect of restoring the positive frequency components while shifting the negative frequency ones an additional +90°, resulting in their negation.
When the Hilbert transform is applied twice, the phase of the negative and positive frequency components of u(t) are respectively shifted by +180° and −180°, which are equivalent amounts. The signal is negated, i.e., H(H(u)) = −u, because:
Table of selected Hilbert transforms
Signal  Hilbert transformSome authors, e.g., Bracewell, use our −H as their definition of the forward transform. A consequence is that the right column of this table would be negated. 

The Hilbert transform of the sin and cos functions can be defined in a distributional sense, if there is a concern that the integral defining them is otherwise conditionally convergent. In the periodic setting this result holds without any difficulty.

Domain of definition
It is by no means obvious that the Hilbert transform is welldefined at all, as the improper integral defining it must converge in a suitable sense. However, the Hilbert transform is welldefined for a broad class of functions, namely those in L^{p(R)}for 1
More precisely, if u is in L^{p(R) for 1
exists for almost every t. The limit function is also in Lp(R), and is in fact the limit in the mean of the improper integral as well. That is,
as ε→0 in the Lpnorm, as well as pointwise almost everywhere, by the Titchmarsh theoremTitchmarsh theoremIn mathematics, particularly in the area of Fourier analysis, the Titchmarsh theorem may refer to:* The Titchmarsh convolution theorem* The theorem relating real and imaginary parts of the boundary values of a Hp function in the upper halfplane with the Hilbert transform of an Lp function. See... .
In the case p=1, the Hilbert transform still converges pointwise almost everywhere, but may fail to be itself integrable even locally . In particular, convergence in the mean does not in general happen in this case. The Hilbert transform of an L1 function does converge, however, in L1weak, and the Hilbert transform is a bounded operator from L1 to L1,w . (In particular, since the Hilbert transform is also a multiplier operator on L2, Marcinkiewicz interpolation and a duality argument furnishes an alternative proof that H is bounded on Lp.)
Boundedness
If 1p}(R) is a bounded linear operator, meaning that there exists a constant C_{p such that
for all u∈Lp(R). This theorem is due to ; see also .
The best constant Cp is given by
This result is due to ; see also . The same best constants hold for the periodic Hilbert transform.
The boundedness of the Hilbert transform implies the Lp(R) convergence of the (symmetric) Fourier series of periodic functions in Lp(R), see for example
Antiself adjointness
The Hilbert transform is an antiself adjoint operator relative to the duality pairing between Lp(R) and the dual space Lq(R), where p and q are Hölder conjugates and 1 < p,q < ∞. Symbolically,
for u ∈ Lp(R) and v ∈ Lq(R) .
Inverse transform
The Hilbert transform is an antiinvolution, meaning that
provided each transform is welldefined. Since H preserves the space Lp(R), this implies in particular that the Hilbert transform is invertible on Lp(R), and that
Differentiation
Formally, the derivative of the Hilbert transform is the Hilbert transform of the derivative:
Iterating this identity,
This is rigorously true as stated provided u and its first k derivatives belong to Lp(R) .
Convolutions
The Hilbert transform can formally be realized as a convolutionConvolutionIn mathematics and, in particular, functional analysis, convolution is a mathematical operation on two functions f and g, producing a third function that is typically viewed as a modified version of one of the original functions. Convolution is similar to crosscorrelation... with the tempered distributionTempered distribution*Distribution *Tempered representation...
Thus formally,
However, a priori this may only be defined for u a distribution of compact support. It is possible to work somewhat rigorously with this since compactly supported functions (which are distributions a fortiori) are dense in Lp. Alternatively, one may use the fact that h(t) is the distributional derivative of the function logt/π; to wit
For most operational purposes the Hilbert transform can be treated as a convolution. For example, in a formal sense, the Hilbert transform of a convolution is the convolution of the Hilbert transform on either factor:
This is rigorously true if u and v are compactly supported distributions since, in that case,
By passing to an appropriate limit, it is thus also true if u ∈ Lp and v ∈ Lr provided
a theorem due to .
Invariance
The Hilbert transform has the following invariance properties.
It commutes with translations. That is, it commutes with the operators Taƒ(x) = ƒ(x + a) for all a in Rn
It commutes with positive dilations. That is it commutes with the operators Mλƒ(x) = ƒ(λx) for all λ > 0.
It anticommutesAnticommutativityIn mathematics, anticommutativity is the property of an operation that swapping the position of any two arguments negates the result. Anticommutative operations are widely used in algebra, geometry, mathematical analysis and, as a consequence, in physics: they are often called antisymmetric... with the reflection Rƒ(x) = ƒ(−x).
Up to a multiplicative constant, the Hilbert transform is the only L2 bounded operator with these properties .
Hilbert transform of distributions
It is further possible to extend the Hilbert transform to certain spaces of distributionsDistribution (mathematics)In mathematical analysis, distributions are objects that generalize functions. Distributions make it possible to differentiate functions whose derivatives do not exist in the classical sense. In particular, any locally integrable function has a distributional derivative... . Since the Hilbert transform commutes with differentiation, and is a bounded operator on Lp, H restricts to give a continuous transform on the inverse limitInverse limitIn mathematics, the inverse limit is a construction which allows one to "glue together" several related objects, the precise manner of the gluing process being specified by morphisms between the objects... of Sobolev spaces:
The Hilbert transform can then be defined on the dual space of , denoted , consisting of Lp distributions. This is accomplished by the duality pairing: for , define by
for all .
It is possible to define the Hilbert transform on the space of tempered distributions as well by an approach due to , but considerably more care is needed because of the singularity in the integral.
Hilbert transform of bounded functions
The Hilbert transform can be defined for functions in L∞(R) as well, but it requires some modifications and caveats. Properly understood, the Hilbert transform maps L∞(R) to the Banach spaceBanach spaceIn mathematics, Banach spaces is the name for complete normed vector spaces, one of the central objects of study in functional analysis. A complete normed vector space is a vector space V with a norm · such that every Cauchy sequence in V has a limit in V In mathematics, Banach spaces is the... of bounded mean oscillationBounded mean oscillationIn harmonic analysis, a function of bounded mean oscillation, also known as a BMO function, is a realvalued function whose mean oscillation is bounded... (BMO) classes.
Interpreted naively, the Hilbert transform of a bounded function is clearly illdefined. For instance, with u = sgn(x), the integral defining H(u) diverges almost everywhere to ±∞. To alleviate such difficulties, the Hilbert transform of an L∞function is therefore defined by the following regularizedRegularization (physics)Introduction:In physics, especially quantum field theory, regularization is a method of dealing with infinite, divergent, and nonsensical expressions by introducing an auxiliary concept of a regulator... form of the integral
where as above h(x) = 1/πx and
The modified transform H agrees with the original transform on functions of compact support by a general result of ; see . The resulting integral, furthermore, converges pointwise almost everywhere, and with respect to the BMO norm, to a function of bounded mean oscillation.
A deep result of and is that a function is of bounded mean oscillation if and only if it has the form ƒ + H(g) for some ƒ, g ∈ L∞(R).
Conjugate functions
The Hilbert transform can be understood in terms of a pair of functions f(x) and g(x) such that the function
is the boundary value of a holomorphic functionHolomorphic functionIn mathematics, holomorphic functions are the central objects of study in complex analysis. A holomorphic function is a complexvalued function of one or more complex variables that is complex differentiable in a neighborhood of every point in its domain... F(z) in the upper halfplane. Under these circumstances, if f and g are sufficiently integrable, then one is the Hilbert transform of the other.
Suppose that f ∈ Lp(R). Then, by the theory of the Poisson integral, f admits a unique harmonic extension into the upper halfplane, and this extension is given by
which is the convolution of f with the Poisson kernelPoisson kernelIn potential theory, the Poisson kernel is an integral kernel, used for solving the twodimensional Laplace equation, given Dirichlet boundary conditions on the unit disc. The kernel can be understood as the derivative of the Green's function for the Laplace equation...
Furthermore, there is a unique harmonic function v defined in the upper halfplane such that F(z) = u(z) + iv(z) is holomorphic and
This harmonic function is obtained from f by taking a convolution with the conjugate Poisson kernel
Thus
Indeed, the real and imaginary parts of the Cauchy kernel are
so that F = u + iv is holomorphic by Cauchy's theorem.
The function v obtained from u in this way is called the harmonic conjugateHarmonic conjugateIn mathematics, a function u defined on some open domain \Omega\subset\R^2 is said to have as a conjugate a function v if and only if they are respectively real and imaginary part of a holomorphic function f of the complex variable z:=x+iy\in\Omega. That is, v is conjugated to u if f:=u+iv is... of u. The (nontangential) boundary limit of v(x,y) as y → 0 is the Hilbert transform of f. Thus, succinctly,
Titchmarsh's theorem
A theorem due to Edward Charles TitchmarshEdward Charles TitchmarshEdward Charles "Ted" Titchmarsh was a leading British mathematician.He was educated at King Edward VII School and Balliol College, Oxford, where he began his studies in October 1917.... makes precise the relationship between the boundary values of holomorphic functions in the upper halfplane and the Hilbert transform . It gives necessary and sufficient conditions for a complexvalued squareintegrable function F(x) on the real line to be the boundary value of a function in the Hardy spaceHardy spaceIn complex analysis, the Hardy spaces Hp are certain spaces of holomorphic functions on the unit disk or upper half plane. They were introduced by Frigyes Riesz , who named them after G. H. Hardy, because of the paper... H2(U) of holomorphic functions in the upper halfplane U.
The theorem states that the following conditions for a complexvalued squareintegrable function F : R → C are equivalent:
F(x) is the limit as z → x of a holomorphic function F(z) in the upper halfplane such that
−Im(F) is the Hilbert transform of Re(F), where Re(F) and Im(F) are realvalued functions with F = Re(F) + i Im(F).

A weaker result is true for functions of class LpLp spaceIn mathematics, the Lp spaces are function spaces defined using a natural generalization of the pnorm for finitedimensional vector spaces... for p > 1 . Specifically, if F(z) is a holomorphic function such that
for all y, then there is a complexvalued function F(x) in Lp(R) such that F(x + iy) → F(x) in the Lp norm as y → 0 (as well as holding pointwise almost everywhereAlmost everywhereIn measure theory , a property holds almost everywhere if the set of elements for which the property does not hold is a null set, that is, a set of measure zero . In cases where the measure is not complete, it is sufficient that the set is contained within a set of measure zero...). Furthermore,
where ƒ is a realvalued function in Lp(R) and g is the Hilbert transform (of class Lp) of ƒ.
This is not true in the case p = 1. In fact, the Hilbert transform of an L1 function ƒ need not converge in the mean to another L1 function. Nevertheless , the Hilbert transform of ƒ does converge almost everywhere to a finite function g such that
This result is directly analogous to one by Andrey KolmogorovAndrey KolmogorovAndrey Nikolaevich Kolmogorov was a Soviet mathematician, preeminent in the 20th century, who advanced various scientific fields, among them probability theory, topology, intuitionistic logic, turbulence, classical mechanics and computational complexity.Early life:Kolmogorov was born at Tambov... for Hardy functions in the disc .
Riemann–Hilbert problem
One form of the Riemann–Hilbert problem seeks to identify pairs of functions F+ and F− such that F+ is holomorphicHolomorphic functionIn mathematics, holomorphic functions are the central objects of study in complex analysis. A holomorphic function is a complexvalued function of one or more complex variables that is complex differentiable in a neighborhood of every point in its domain... on the upper halfplane and F− is holomorphic on the lower halfplane, such that for x along the real axis,
where f(x) is some given realvalued function of x ∈ R. The lefthand side of this equation may be understood either as the difference of the limits of F± from the appropriate halfplanes, or as a hyperfunctionHyperfunctionIn mathematics, hyperfunctions are generalizations of functions, as a 'jump' from one holomorphic function to another at a boundary, and can be thought of informally as distributions of infinite order... distribution. Two functions of this form are a solution of the Riemann–Hilbert problem.
Formally, if F± solve the Riemann–Hilbert problem
then the Hilbert transform of f(x) is given by
Hilbert transform on the circle
For a periodic function f the circular Hilbert transform is defined as
The circular Hilbert transform is used in giving a characterization of Hardy space and in the study of the conjugate function in Fourier series. The kernel is known as the Hilbert kernel since it was in this form the Hilbert transform was originally studied .
The Hilbert kernel (for the circular Hilbert transform) can be obtained by making the Cauchy kernel 1/x periodic. More precisely, for x≠0
Many results about the circular Hilbert transform may be derived from the corresponding results for the Hilbert transform from this correspondence.
Narrowband model
Bedrosian's theorem states that the Hilbert transform of the product of a lowpass and a highpass signal with nonoverlapping spectra is given by the product of the lowpass signal and the Hilbert transform of the highpass signal, or
where and are the low and highpass signals respectively.
Amplitude modulated signals are modeled as the product of a bandlimitedBandlimitedBandlimiting is the limiting of a deterministic or stochastic signal's Fourier transform or power spectral density to zero above a certain finite frequency... "message" waveform, um(t), and a sinusoidal "carrier":
When has no frequency content above the carrier frequency, then by Bedrosian's theorem:
So, the Hilbert transform may be seen as simple as a circuit that produces a 90° phase shift at the carrier frequency. Furthermore:
(see next section)
from which one can reconstruct the carrier waveform. Then the message can be extracted from u(t) by coherent demodulation.
Analytic representation
The analytic representation of a signal is defined in terms of the Hilbert transform:
For the narrowband model [above], the analytic representation is:
This complex heterodyneHeterodyneHeterodyning is a radio signal processing technique invented in 1901 by Canadian inventorengineer Reginald Fessenden where high frequency signals are converted to lower frequencies by combining two frequencies. Heterodyning is useful for frequency shifting information of interest into a useful... operation shifts all the frequency components of um(t) above 0 Hz. In that case, the imaginary part of the result is a Hilbert transform of the real part. This is an indirect way to produce Hilbert transforms.
While the analytic representation of a signal is not necessarily an analytic functionAnalytic functionIn mathematics, an analytic function is a function that is locally given by a convergent power series. There exist both real analytic functions and complex analytic functions, categories that are similar in some ways, but different in others..., ua(t) is given by the boundary values of an analytic function in the upper halfplane.

Causality
The function h with h(t) = 1/(π t) is a noncausal filterCausal filterIn signal processing, a causal filter is a linear and timeinvariant causal system. The word causal indicates that the filter output depends only on past and present inputs. A filter whose output also depends on future inputs is noncausal. A filter whose output depends only on future inputs is... and therefore cannot be implemented as is, if u is a timedependent signal. If u is a function of a nontemporal variable, e.g., spatial, the noncausality might not be a problem. The filter is also of infinite supportSupport (mathematics)In mathematics, the support of a function is the set of points where the function is not zero, or the closure of that set . This concept is used very widely in mathematical analysis... which may be a problem in certain applications. Another issue relates to what happens with the zero frequency (DC), which can be avoided by assuring that does not contain a DCcomponent.
A practical implementation in many cases implies that a finite support filter, which in addition is made causal by means of a suitable delay, is used to approximate the computation. The approximation may also imply that only a specific frequency range is subject to the characteristic phase shift related to the Hilbert transform. See also quadrature filter.
Discrete Hilbert transforms
There are two objects of study which are considered discrete Hilbert transforms. The Discrete Hilbert transform of practical interest is usually described in terms of the following bandlimited transfer function:
which is the discretetime Fourier transformDiscretetime Fourier transformIn mathematics, the discretetime Fourier transform is one of the specific forms of Fourier analysis. As such, it transforms one function into another, which is called the frequency domain representation, or simply the "DTFT", of the original function . But the DTFT requires an input function... of the infinite sequence:
If a signal is bandlimitedBandlimitedBandlimiting is the limiting of a deterministic or stochastic signal's Fourier transform or power spectral density to zero above a certain finite frequency..., then is bandlimited in the same way. Consequently, both these signals can be sampled according to the sampling theorem, resulting in the discrete signals and The relation between the two discrete signals is then given by the convolution:
When an FIRFinite impulse responseA finite impulse response filter is a type of a signal processing filter whose impulse response is of finite duration, because it settles to zero in finite time. This is in contrast to infinite impulse response filters, which have internal feedback and may continue to respond indefinitely... approximation is substituted for we see rolloff of the passband at the low and high ends (0 and Nyquist), resulting in a bandpass filter as shown in the figure above. The high end can be restored by an FIR that more closely resembles samples of the smooth, continuoustime as shown in the next figure. But as a practical matter, a properlysampled sequence has no useful components at those frequencies.
As the impulse response gets longer, the low end frequencies are also restored. Hilbert studied the transform :
and showed that for in ℓ2 the sequence is also in ℓ2. An elementary proof of this fact can be found in . This discrete Hilbert transform was used by E. C. Titchmarsh to give alternate proofs of the results of M. Riesz in the continuous case .
We also note that a sequence similar to can be generated by sampling σH(ω) and computing the inverse discrete Fourier transformDiscrete Fourier transformIn mathematics, the discrete Fourier transform is a specific kind of discrete transform, used in Fourier analysis. It transforms one function into another, which is called the frequency domain representation, or simply the DFT, of the original function.... The larger the transform (i.e., more samples per radians), the better the agreement (for a given value of the abscissa, n). The figure shows the comparison for a 512point transform. (Due to oddsymmetry, only half the sequence is actually plotted.)
But that is not the actual point, because it is easier and more accurate to generate directly from the formula. The point is that many applications choose to avoid the convolution by doing the equivalent frequencydomain operation: simple multiplication of the signal transform with σH(ω), made even easier by the fact that the real and imaginary components are 0 and ±1 respectively. The attractiveness of that approach is only apparent when the actual Fourier transforms are replaced by samples of the same, i.e., the DFT, which is an approximation and introduces some distortion. Thus, after transforming back to the timedomain, those applications have indirectly generated (and convolved with) not , but the DFT approximation to it, which is shown in the figure.
Notes on fast convolution:
Implied in the technique described above is the concept of dividing a long signal into segments of arbitrary size. The signal is filtered piecewise, and the outputs are subsequently pieced back together.
The segment size is an important factor in controlling the amount of distortion. As the size increases, the DFT becomes denser and is a better approximation to the underlying Fourier transform. In the timedomain, the same distortion is manifested as "aliasing", which results in a type of convolution called circularCircular convolutionThe circular convolution, also known as cyclic convolution, of two aperiodic functions occurs when one of them is convolved in the normal way with a periodic summation of the other function. That situation arises in the context of the Circular convolution theorem.... It is as if the same segment is repeated periodically and filtered, resulting in distortion that is worst at either or both edges of the original segment. Increasing the segment size reduces the number of edges in the piecedtogether result and therefore reduces overall distortion.
Another mitigation strategy is to simply discard the most badly distorted output samples, because data loss can be avoided by overlapping the input segments. When the filter's impulse response is less than the segment length, this can produce a distortionfree (noncircular) convolution (Overlapdiscard method). That requires an FIR filter, which the Hilbert transform is not. So yet another technique is to design an FIR approximation to a Hilbert transform filter. That moves the source of distortion from the convolution to the filter, where it can be readily characterized in terms of imperfections in the frequency response.
Failure to appreciate or correctly apply these concepts is probably one of the most common mistakes made by nonexperts in the digital signal processing field.
