Spectral reprojection techniques make possible the recovery of exponential accuracy from the partial Fourier sum of a piecewise-analytic function, essentially conquering the Gibbs phenomenon for this class of functions. This paper extends this result to non-harmonic partial sums, proving that spectral reprojection can reduce the Gibbs phenomenon in non-harmonic reconstruction as well as remove reconstruction artifacts due to erratic sampling. We are particularly interested in the case where the Fourier samples form a frame. These techniques are motivated by a desire to improve the quality of images reconstructed from non-uniform Fourier data, such as magnetic resonance (MR) images.
