Paper Abstract

A brief review from a physical point of view of coherence theory and linear systems analysis as applied to optical systems used under coherent and incoherent conditions of illumination will be given. Image processing will then be looked upon as a problem of achieving a prespecified optical transfer function for both cases of illumination separately. A conceptual solution to this problem is given followed by simple illustrative examples.
