A conjecture of Fuglede states that a bounded measurable set ⊂ R d , of measure 1, can tile R d by translations if and only if the Hilbert space L 2 () has an orthonormal basis consisting of exponentials e�(x) = exp 2πih λ, xi . If has the latter property it is called spectral. Let be a polytope in R d with the following property: there is a direction ξ ∈ S d 1 such that, of all the polytope faces perpendicular to ξ, the total area of the faces pointing in the positive ξ direction is more than… Expand

A set Ω ⊂ ℝ 2 is said to be spectral if the space L 2 (Ω) has an orthogonal basis of exponential functions. It is well-known that in many respects, spectral sets “behave like” sets which can tile theExpand

Let \$A\$ be a polytope in \${\mathbb{R}}^d\$ (not necessarily convex or connected). We say that \$A\$ is spectral if the space \$L^2(A)\$ has an orthogonal basis consisting of exponential functions. AExpand

We prove that if a measurable domain tiles R or R 2 by translations, and if it is \close enough" to a line segment or a square respectively, then it admits a lattice tiling. We also prove a similarExpand

We investigate Fuglede's spectral set conjecture in the special case when the set in question is a union of finitely many unit intervals in dimension 1. In this case, the conjecture can beExpand

Fuglede’s conjecture fails in dimension 4
In this note we modify a recent example of Tao and give an example of a set Omega subset of R-4 such that L-2(Omega) admits an orthonormal basis of exponentials {1/vertical bar Omega vertical bar 1/2Expand
Fuglede's conjecture is false in 5 and higher dimensions
We give an example of a set Ω ⊂ R 5 which is a finite union of unit cubes, such that L 2 (Ω) admits an orthonormal basis of exponentials { 1 |Ω|1/2 e 2πiξj ·x :

In this paper, we show that non-symmetric convex polytopes cannot serve as a window function to produce a Gabor orthonormal basis by any time-frequency sets.
Duality properties between spectra and tilings
Spectra and tilings play an important role in analysis and geometry respectively. The relations between spectra and tilings have baffled the mathematicians for a long time. Many conjectures, such asExpand

In this survey I will try to describe how Fourier analysis is used in the study of translational tiling. Right away I will emphasize two restrictions that separate this area from the general theoryExpand
