This paper considers generators of Heisenberg modules in the case of twisted group C∗-algebras of closed subgroups of locally compact abelian (LCA) groups and how the restriction and/or periodization of these generators yield generators for other Heisenberg modules. Since generators of Heisenberg modules are exactly the generators of (multi-window) Gabor frames, our methods are going to be from Gabor analysis. In the latter setting, the procedure of restriction and periodization of generators is well known. Our results extend this established part of Gabor analysis to the general setting of LCA groups. We give several concrete examples where we demonstrate some of the consequences of our results. Finally, we show that vector bundles over an irrational noncommutative torus may be approximated by vector bundles for finite-dimensional matrix algebras that converge to the irrational noncommutative torus with respect to the module norm of the generators, where the matrix algebras converge in the quantum Gromov–Hausdorff distance to the irrational noncommutative torus.
