The Hartley transform is a mathematical transformation which is closely related to the better known Fourier transform. The properties that differentiate the Hartley Transform from its Fourier counterpart are that the forward and the inverse transforms are identical and also that the Hartley transform of a real signal is a real function of frequency. The Whitened Hartley spectrum, which stems from the Hartley transform, is a bounded function that encapsulates the phase content of a signal. The Whitened Hartley spectrum, unlike the Fourier phase spectrum, is a function that does not suffer from discontinuities or wrapping ambiguities. An overview on how the Whitened Hartley spectrum encapsulates the phase content of a signal more efficiently compared with its Fourier counterpart as well as the reason that phase unwrapping is not necessary for theWhitened Hartley spectrum, are provided in this study. Moreover, in this study, we deal with the function which is significant generalization of Fox’s H-function which was introduced by Hartley and Lorenzo and later on modified by Jain et al.2010 Mathematics Subject Classifications: 26A33, 33C05, 33C10, 33C20.Keywords and phrases: Generalized fractional integral operators, H-Function, I-function and R-function.[Download full paper]
