We consider the problem of reconstructing a function f with bounded support S from finitely many values of its Fourier transform F. Although f cannot be band limited since it has bounded support, it is typically the case that f can be modeled as the restriction to S of a σ-band-limited function, say g. Our reconstruction method is based on such a model for f. Of particular interest is the effect of the choice of σ > 0 on the resolution.
