A longstanding problem in Gabor theory is to identify time-frequency shifting lattices $a\mathbb{Z}\times b\mathbb{Z}$ and ideal window functions $\chi_I$ on intervals $I$ of length $c$ such that $\{e^{-2\pi i n bt} \chi_I(t- m a):\ (m, n)\in \mathbb{Z}\times \mathbb{Z}\}$ are Gabor frames for the space of all square-integrable functions on the real line. In this paper, the authors create a time-domain approach for Gabor frames, introduce novel techniques involving invariant sets of non-contractive and non-measure-preserving transformations on the line, and provide a complete answer to the above $abc$-problem for Gabor systems.
