Paper Abstract

Spherical filters have recently been introduced in order to avoid the spherical harmonic transform. Spherical filtering can be used in a variety of applications, such as climate modelling, electromagnetic and acoustic scattering, and several other areas. However, up to now these methods have been restricted to special grids on the sphere. The main reason for this was to enable the use of FFT techniques. In this paper we extend the spherical filter to arbitrary grids by using the the Nonequispaced Fast Fourier Transform (NFFT). The new algorithm can be applied to a variety of different distributions on the sphere, equidistributions on the sphere being an important example. The algorithm's performance is illustrated with several numerical examples.
