Superoscillations are band-limited functions that can oscillate faster than their fastest Fourier component. These functions (or sequences) appear in weak values in quantum mechanics and in many fields of science and technology such as optics, signal processing and antenna theory. In this paper, we introduce a new method to generate superoscillatory functions that allows us to construct explicitly a very large class of superoscillatory functions.

Uncertainty inequalities for superoscillations
A canonical superoscillatory function, defined on the circle, satisfies a set of uncertainty inequalities for periodic functions, strengthened by an anticommutator term introduced by Schrödinger. The
A unified approach to Schrödinger evolution of superoscillations and supershifts

Holomorphic functions, relativistic sum, Blaschke products and superoscillations
Superoscillating functions are band-limited functions that can oscillate faster than their fastest Fourier component. The notion of superoscillation is a particular case of that one of supershift. In
