According to the classical cardinal series theorem any integrable, entire function of exponential type \(\leq \sigma\) can be represented by its cardinal series with nodes \(k\pi\) /\(\sigma\). It is shown that for continuous functions having an absolute integrable Fourier transform or satisfying certain smoothness conditions this representation holds in the limit for \(\sigma\) \(\to \infty\). Similarly, the derivatives of a function as well as its Hilbert transform can be approximated by the derivatives and the Hilbert transform of the cardinal series, respectively. Estimates for the approximation error are given; these are shown to be best possible.
