Abstract

We characterize the existence of finite tight frames whose frame elements are of predetermined length. In particular, we derive a “fundamental inequality” which completely characterizes those sequences which arise as the lengths of a tight frame’s elements. Furthermore, using concepts from classical physics, we show that this characterization has an intuitive physical interpretation.
