Abstract
We define the quadratic algebra su(2)(alpha) which is a one-parameter deformation of the Lie algebra su(2) extended by a parity operator. The odd-dimensional representations of su(2) (with representation label j, a positive integer) can be extended to representations of su(2)(alpha). We investigate a model of the finite one-dimensional harmonic oscillator based upon this algebra su(2)(alpha). It turns out that in this model the spectrum of the position and momentum operator can be computed explicitly, and that the corresponding (discrete) wavefunctions can be determined in terms of Hahn polynomials. The operation mapping position wavefunctions into momentum wavefunctions is studied, and this so-called discrete Fourier-Hahn transform is computed explicitly. The matrix of this discrete Fourier-Hahn transform has many interesting properties, similar to those of the traditional discrete Fourier transform.
