The Hilbert transform plays an important role in the theory and practice of signal processing operations in continuous system theory because of its relevance to such problems as envelope detection and demodulation, as well as its use in relating the real and imaginary components, and the magnitude and phase components of spectra. The Hilbert transform is a multiplier operator and is widely used in the theory of Fourier transforms. The Hilbert transform is the main part of the singular integral equations on the real line. Therefore, approximations of the Hilbert transform are of great interest. Many papers have dealt with the numerical approximation of the singular integrals in the case of bounded intervals. On the other hand, the literature concerning the numerical integration on unbounded intervals is by far poorer than the one on bounded intervals. The case of the Hilbert Transform has been considered very little. This article is devoted to the approximation of the Hilbert transform in Lebesgue spaces by operators which introduced by V.R.Kress and E.Mortensen to approximate the Hilbert transform of analytic functions in a strip. In this paper, we prove that the approximating operators are bounded maps in Lebesgue spaces and strongly converges to the Hilbert transform in these spaces.
