    This paper derives three fundamental identities in the radar and sonar literature, namely, Sussman' identity for ambiguity functions, Moyal's formula which establishes the value of the inner product between two scattering functions, and Janseen's formula which establishes identities for mixed inner products between waveforms and Gabor wavelets. Starting from the fundamental convolution identity, w... View full abstract»
